  Tiger cave is near Salurankuppam. This is a coastal village of 5 Kilometers north of mahabalipuram on the Kovalam Road in Tamilnadu,India. This is a magnificent mandapa which contains a shrine dedicated to goddess Durga which has big beautiful figures in front. The deposition here is on the battle of Goddess Durga and Mahishasura. There are number of charges in this Mandapam from that of the Mahishasura Mardini Mandapam. The figure of somaskanda is found in Athiranachanda Mandapa to the south of Tiger care. This too is a popular picnic spot.
