This study was focused on the megalithic and rock art cultures of Maraiyur and surroundings by adopting a regional approach. Also this work intended to a address the issues like a detailed exploration and documentation of the rock Arts sites and megalithic sites, and reconstruction of the cultural sequence of Maraiyur. This study yielded a detailed documentation and analysis of rock art and megalithic sites and which brought to light more than 30 Iron Age-Early Historic sites, two habitational evidences as well. The excavation of Megalithic burial and rock shelter produced evidence of early historic occupation in the area.

Further this has not only helped in identifying new archaeological site in this region, but also the cultural synthesis with neighbouring area of Palani hills and Amaravathi Valley in Thamil Nadu."
