Virupaksha Cave, Thiruvannamalai Overview

This unique cave aashram is in the shape of the Hindu symbol OM. The cave is situated atop a small peak in the Arunachala Hill, nearly 200 feet below the Skandasram cave.

There are sever sacred springs on the slope of the hill. The caves seem to be named after the renowned 13th century saint named Virupaksha Deva, who apparently spent most of his life here. It is believed that his body turned to ashes after his samsdhi. These ashed are preserved here and worshiped everyday.
