The alley is still covered with lots of beautiful paintings, posters, graffiti, stickers, and even some installations. Here is nice temporary one.

The entrance of the caves line two massive statues, a green Hanuman and the world’s tallest statue of Lord Murugan being 42.7m high. The stairs are quite steep all the way up, but there are lots of monkeys that entertain you and try to steal your food. On the way down, there is
