The 100-pillar mandapam of the rock-cut Sri Umayambikai - Sri Parvathigiriswarar temple under the maintenance of the Archaeological Survey of India in Kundrandarkovil in Pudukottai district has developed a number of cracks as renovation work remains unfinished. While the temple is a rock-cut structure, the mandapam is an independent hall well outside the hillock. The ASI took up renovation of the temple in a phased manner. Firstly, it renovated the ‘vagana mandapam’ and completed it in 2001. Later, it took up renovation of the 100-pillar mandapam, much to the delight of the villagers and devotees. Although the stones were separated from part of the ceiling and numbered, the renovation work is yet to be completed.
