The caves situated at an altitude houses a large statue of lord murugan. A steep climb of more than 500 steps to reach the top. Climb ONLY if you are physically fit.

272 steps up to the cave with playful and few bad monkeys along the stairs, you will find Indian shrine inside beautiful natural cave. You will also see small waterfall on your way up. Worth going. Shorts are not allowed.

There are no stairs to get to the view from the bottom and depending on how you get there will depend on the distance to the entrance. It's not very far though.

Yes there is work underway, it does not affect your visit and if you are fit and healthy you could help the efforts by carrying a brick or two to the top!
