Make your way to Rock-Cut Jain Temple
Same as starting point
Visit the famous village of Sittannavasal to explore its famous rock-cut Jain Temples that are significant in the study of art history in India. Known as Arivarkovil or Temple of the Arhats, this rock-cut temple was earlier considered to be an excavation of Pallava king Mahendravarman I. In the sanctum are three more bas-reliefs of two Jaina Tirthankaras as denoted by the triple chhatris and an acharya (teacher).
Sittannavasal is a small village in Pudukkottai district and is world famous for its fresco paintings in the rock-cut Jaina cave temple and it has an important place in the history of Tamil Nadu. The megalithic monuments such as stone-circles, urn burials and cists spread in the plains of this village testify that this area was inhabited by pre-historic man.
However, the most significant feature of the cave-temple is the occurrence of mural paintings depicting the theme of Samavasarana, the most delightful of Jaina heavens, and particularly the second bhumi (level) viz. khatika-bhumi or the region of tank.
