Kaviyoor Rock Cut Cave Temple

Thrikkakkudy cave temple or the rock cut cave temple at Kaviyoor near Thiruvalla is one of the oldest cave temples in Kerala.

Dedicated to Lord Siva, the temple is of archaeological significance because of its similarities with the Pallava art tradition and style of architecture. Believed to have originated in the latter half of the 8th century, the cave is 19 feet and 8 inches wide and 8 feet 6 inches high. The West-facing cave comprises a central shrine with a Sivalinga, an ardhamandapa and a pillared facade. In 1965, it was declared as a protected monument.
