Definitely a place that Viayagar need to visit and see for myself. Awesome post as always! As this is a cave formation, there is no provision to go around for the pradakshina.
These temples are always so colorful and fascinating to explore especially when you get a chance to witness the rituals and elaborate flowers and costumes involved, its all wonderful. There is so much to learn about India, fortunately there are many bloggers from your country, who tell about the Indian deities.
