There is a monolithic stone of 25 feet high in which idols of four tirthankars ( Mahavira , Parshva
Parshva
or Parsavanathar, Rishabha or Kilaku Rishabanathar and Chandranathar ) were carved nicely at the four sides. Until the 10th century this place was called THANDAPURAM (Tamil : தண்டபுரம்). Raja Raja Chola I 's inscriptions of 1007 A. D. quotes these cave abodes as Sankaraippalli (Tamil : சங்கரைப் பள்ளி) and Mai Sutthappalli (Tamil : மை சுத்தப் பள்ளி).
