4 Natural caverns found at Tirumayam hillock A contiguous group of four natural caverns, believed to have been the dwelling sites of prehistoric man, were found at the southern ledge of the Tirumayam hillock in Pudukottai district, with one of them containing ancient rock art paintings. The first cavern, situated was filled with soil in its interior. Ancient rock art paintings in red colour were found on the ceiling of the second cavern. The first cavern is filled with debris. The second one, slightly smaller in size and is at a higher level from the ground, can accommodate a few persons in its interior. The ancient rock art paintings in one of the caverns were similar to those found elsewhere in Tamil Nadu, dating back to 2,500-3,000 BC. The Tirumayam hillock has a 17th Century fort at the top and cave temples of Siva and Vishnu on its southern side. 45 Technology Centres Inagurated Chief minister M K Stalin inaugurated Tech centres in 45 government ITIs established at the cost of 1,559.25 crore.
