Varaha Cave Temple is a monolithic rock-cut temple with a mandapam. This cave dates back to 7th century and is constructed on the rocky walls of the granite hill. On the walls of mandapam, Lord Vishnu as Varaha along with the boar, holding Bhudevi, the earth goddess in his arms, is sculptured beautifully.

On the inner wall is the shrine of Goddess Gajalakshmi, seated on a large lotus with elephants showering water on her from both sides. There is another sculpture of Goddess Durga with four arms and Trivikrama overcoming demon king Bali. These artistic Pallava sculptures depict the contrast in mood and style
