There are Neolithic Cave Sites in Edakkal located at an altitude of 1000 meters on Ambukutty Mala near Ambalavayal in the Wayanad district of Kerala. The word Edakkal means a stone in between. These caves have been a subject of great interest to archaeologist's and historians. The paintings on the walls of these caves date back to prehistoric times.

The cave is on two levels and there are several stories associated with these caves. It is believed that Lavh and Kush, the sons of the legendary epic hero Ram formed these caves by firing an arrow. Yet others believe that Ram himself had killed Surpanakha, Ravana's sister at this place.
