about edakkal caves

If art fascinates you, then you shouldn't miss out on the Eddakal caves in Kalpetta. This is a prehistoric caves filled with numerous rock wall paintings that continues to attract historians and Archaeologists from all over the world to this place. One can find at least three sets of petroglyphs. Studies have shown that the etchings are more than 5000 years old and the caves seem to have been inhabited at various stages in history.

The caves are formed due to a fissure in the rock. Legend says that the cave was formed when an arrow released from the bow of Lord Rama, struck this rock surface, creating the fissure.
