About Shri Dharmaraja Cave Temple
Located near the Mahishamardini cave on the south side of Mamallapuram hill, Shri Dharmaraja Cave Temple has a facade, Ardha-mandapa and mukh-mandapa alike the Kotikal cave. A space for the two mandapas was created by four-faced slim pillars.
The Ardha-mandapa was built three inches above the mukha-mandapa. The inner hall leads to three shrine cells belonging to Lord Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu. It has the best carvings on the stone and also is a great place to visit with your family and kids. This is located just next to the lighthouse but its location on the top of the hill made it more attractive among the visitors as one can get picturesque views from the temple.
