Vallimalai

 

 

 

 

 

Vallimalai is a village in Katpadi taluk of Vellore district, Tamil Nadu, India. It is known for a Hindu temple for Murugan. According to legend, Murugan married Valli here.

 

This rock cut hill temple is built on top of a small hill accessed through a flight of 300 steps. Much of the temple is within a cave. The cave temple is in three levels successively increasing in elevation. There are also shrines to Vinayakar and Kasi Viswanathar here. The construction in this temple is attributed to the Pallava rulers and to the Madurai Nayak rulers.
