If you want to see Madurai in a off beaten path visit this place approximately 12 kms From Madurai Railway Junction. At the base of a small Hill is a lotus pond and ayyanar Temple the Village Diety and if you are looking for a trek,climb up the 300 odd steps on the hill to see the Jain sculptures on... 更多
I was glad to go there, and honour the many people who have resided there seeking enlightenment over the centuries. Our rickshaw driver told us not to go to the other side of the hill as some people dwell there in silence. Out of respect we stopped at the top of the hill and did not explore the cave. I... 更多
The place is quiet and calm and also very clean .If you want to go to the cave you will have to climb and walk a lot. The railings to hold and climb is only for some distance. After that it is not safe.
The Jain hills can provide adventure and thrill for those interested in Jain monuments. Select evening or early morning timings for climbing.
This place will be a different experience altogether... a climb over a shield mountain... takes you back to ages of Jain literature.... But safety is a concern, that to in late hours... It will take 1-1.5 hrs to climb n be back.... the optimum time to start climbing would be 5 am or 4.30 pm....
It is true that not many people know this place. There is a local temple and behind the temple you may have to travel few 100 meters and you see a forlorn place. Climb by foot to some distance and you can see a cave, however, we may have to go in group as this place (inside the cave) gambling... 更多
Such a beatiful place! We went there on a tuesday and we were the only ones there on the majestic big snake mountain in the warm sunlight overlooking the landscape. And there is two places with Buddha statues cut out in the walls.
If you are jain, you should be visiting this place if you are passing near madurai. Very small trek to top of the hill. there are 2 paths .. you should not miss the one on left side. There is very big carving(5 ft) of statue in rock there.
Not many people are aware about this location. It's only a rock with sculptures on it (Jain Sculptures). But if you would like to see something extravagant apart from the all-lookalike temples of Madurai, must visit here. Try not to go when it's too hot. Amazing view of the city.
