With a view to host cultural programmes during the Pallava period, this cave was built as an open-air theatre. The Tiger's Cave today is a famous picnic spot and serves as a beautiful destination for nature lovers. Visitors can even travel to the beach, which is in the  proximity of this cave.

Don't expect the tiger in this place, the name only says the tiger cage but no tigers here, it is the place for the pleasant evening to be spent and you can spend lot of time in taking photos with the beautiful caves near by. Best place to visit at least once on the way to Mahabs.

"Peaceful and relaxing place"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
A beautiful open air theatre constructed by the pallava kings of yester years. The stage has as canopy sculpted in rocks containing tiger faces all over. Hence the name tiger caves. A very neat and clean place maintained well by ASI. A place to relax peacefully with the sound of waves behind.
