Virupaksha Cave, Thiruvannamalai Overview

This unique cave ashram in Thiruvannamalai 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 is said to have spent most of his life here. This is also where his samadhi is, i.e: his ashes are preserved here and worshipped every day.
