Lower Pallava Cave Temple

The lower cave temple is located at a distance of around 200 meters from the second entrance of the Rockfort complex. Unlike the upper cave temple, this has many bas-relief images. The front facade is supported by four pillars and two pilasters. Above the pillars, a lot of small sized gana faces are carved. Among them, the monkey faced gana is unique one. The hall has two shrines on either side walls. The main wall is divided into five niches. The life sized bas-relief images of Ganesha, Subramanya, Brahma, Surya and Durga are found in those niches.
