Rock cut temple Reviews
A small rock cut temple. Not a picnic spot though. Still people pray here. It's a goddess Durga temple. However, not known as rock cut temple to the locality. Just situated 20m from the junction. more »

Temple, which dates back to the 8th century, is, like many rock temples of the Pallava period in Tamil Nadu, unfinished. A great deity left of the entrance is nearly complete, the two gods right of the entrance just as the access to the inside of the temple. Here is a recent God statue. The rock is the smallest temple we saw on our trip, barely larger than a "retail" cut Temple. In any case, the temple is worth a stop for a visit.
It is a very nice Rock Cut temple. Very rare to see in Kerala. It is in Vizhinjam but most of the people don't know about this place.
The rock cut temple itself is a beautiful piece of art. A protected monument of ASI and no site supervisor around, not even a guide. I being a part of a archaeology survey for research purposes, went there and received a bad treatment. The locals chased us researchers off the premises even when we had the permission from ASI to conduct survey. The locals are very hostile to the visitors. We were denied to take any photographs even though we had a specific letter from ASI regional circle. I recommend this as a good place to visit and see but be vary of the local people there.
