Excavations led by archaeological researchers in the laterite caves of Kudallur near Edappal, in Kerala, have found three closed chambers and a passageway. In the first round of excavations, only two chambers were discovered. The three chambers were found during further excavations here, on Wednesday, as part of a detailed archaeological study led by the researchers.
According to the information from the research team, the passageway leading to the entrance of the chambers is triangular-shaped in an unusual manner. The steps to climb down to the entrance are also cut out from laterite stones. The inside of the chambers and the archaeological remains therein can be found only once the entrances to the chambers can be opened.
The tunnel passageway discovered now has been cut out of laterite stones in a very artistic manner. All the chambers are closed and sealed completely with big laterite stones. The researchers were to open and examine these closed chambers on Thursday.
