Hey guys today I’m going to show you a strange place called Tiger caves. This site you’re about to see has many strange features. I think it must have been an ancient lab. What you’re about to see is really mind-boggling because most people have never seen something like this. There’s something very mysterious about these tiger caves this is not a cave there are no caves here and neither do these monuments show Tigers. If you look at these carvings there are no Tigers and historians maintain that these structures were created by Pallava kings but Pallava Kings never carved Tigers because it symbolizes their rival Cholas so what is the origin of this structure? In normal hindu temples and monuments carvings will appear to have little details when you are far away and as you approach the monuments the carvings will show the more finer details but the structure is the complete opposite of this. When you’re close to the structure you cannot make out what it is. If you see the carvings from this distance you cannot even tell what they are, you cannot even tell if they’re animals. But the farther you go you will get a clearer picture. Jus try… watch how the camera moves farther and farther and the picture gets clearer and clearer. This is the beauty of tiger caves. The tiger cave was supposed to be built about 1300 years ago but some people believe that it was built much much earlier than that more than 10,000 years ago. This is a strange structure many archaeologists agree that this was not a temple but nobody knows why the structure was built? There are no statues. There are other features which explain what the structure was meant to be but you do see various animals. This animal which is commonly mistaken as a tiger has large fangs but also has horns like a cow and you can see more animals what you see here is an elephant. There are more elephants carved nearby but there’s also a horse that’s carved here. Why did they build a monument like this full of different animals? Nobody knows. As you can see this is just a rock it’s just a gigantic rock but you know ancient builders were capable of converting these things into amazing monuments. Just take a look at this, this is incredible as you can see this is just one rock but they’ve turned this into a temple. Let’s go take a look at what it has to offer for us. Now you can see a most spectacularly machined Lingam inside this chamber. This is one of the most complicated structures which were built in the ancient times. Just go inside, take a look how it looks. This Lingam has 16 facets and all the angles are perfectly made imagine taking a block of stone and making them into 16 equal sides with perfect angles. Today you would use C & C machines computerized technology to make a structure like this but how was it done more than a thousand years ago?
