Pathimalai cave UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • Miscreants have caused damage to the rock art paintings at the Pathimalai cave at Kumittipathi, a village near Coimbatore,Tamil Nadu by scribbling their names in the cave and tracing the paintings with chalks

  • The Pathimalai cave paintings believed to be around 3,000 years old, are among the important rock arts in the Kongu region

  • Drawn with white pigments, the paintings depict an elephant, ther (chariot, some say it is a peacock), and the lives of early dwellers of the region

  • While most of the rock painting sites in Tamil Nadu are found on rock shelters, those at Kumittipathi are drawn inside a cave

  • Paintings inside such perfect caves are very few in the State

  • There is a Murugan temple atop the hillock and it could mean that the early dwellers worshipped the deity

  • Kumittipathi falls in the Palakkad Gap of the Western Ghats, a significant break in the mountain range, which has acted as a corridor between the Tamil land and Kerala since ancient times. 

  • There were ancient trade routes (Peruvazhi) in the Palakkad Gap between Anamalai and Ayyasamy Malai

  • Three such routes passed through Anamalai, Vellalore, and Avinashi during the Sangam period
