Tiger's Cave is located near Salurankuppam village at a distance of 5 km to the north of Mahabalipuram. The shrine in this rock-cut cave temple is dedicated to Goddess Durga. The carvings in this cave depict the story of an event occurred in life of Goddess Durga.

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.

"Peaceful and relaxing place" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks 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.
