Unnoticed for many years, Vizhinjam Rock Cut Cave is a historic tourist spot located to the south of Kovalam junction. There are rock-cut sculptures dating from the 18th century in the cave temple at Vizhinjam. The granite cave encloses a one-celled shrine with a loose sculpture of Vinandhara Dakshinamurthi. The outer wall of the cave depicts half-complete relics of the Hindu God Shiva with Goddess Parvathi. The site is open to visitors from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm and stays closed on Monday. The site is about 17 km away from city centre.
