This very interesting 8th century Hindu temple is based on the ancient concept of carving the temples directly from the rocks. This cave is located on the Bay of Bengal.
The signature carvings on this structure show tiger heads. Elephants and perhaps lions are also among the carvings.

Tiger cave is good heritage places for spending some time. This place was very calm and quiet. Just paying ₹25 entry fees we spend some good time and click some snaps. Parking charges ₹40 separate.

This is one of the sightseeing place sin Mahabalipuram but the only one which can be skipped. It has an entry and parking fee but personally I did not feel it quite worth a visit. There was a huge tilted rock along with a cave which looked nothing more beautiful than the other monuments in Mahabalipuram. There is also a beach but it is quite dirty when I went there.

Tiger Cave is worth adding to a visit to the Mahabalipuram monuments. It is the first monument on the way from Chennai so stop off here first. The rock carving is fascinating. The entrance fee is Rs 300 for foreigners and Rs 25 for Indians. Only negative is the amount of litter on the site - pity that the government owners cannot divert some of the entrance fee to keep the site clean.

It's outside Mahabalipuram and the main structures, but do visit this place. The tiger cave, yali cave and shiva temple have amazing carvings. Also great acess to the beach and less crowds than the main beach at mahabs. Entry ticket is seperate at rs.25/ person but parking is expensive

It is situated in the same complex. Nice cave. Avoid afternoon visit as it is very hot out there even during December.

Tiger cave is one of the attrractions of Mahabalipuram. This is situated nearer to Mahabalipuram city and it is a rock cut Hindu temple complex. Cave is made our of rock and entrance is made like tiger heads. Hence it is called Tiger cave.
