Very small temple. I could not find it and many localities did not know about the temple. Old temple and one Shiva Linga inside it. Good place to visit if you have time. Nothing much inside and around the temple.

Its a shiva temple inside the carved cave. The center mantap is just a mantap with Nandhi idol & temple is infront of it. (refered to display pic on TA). On the other side it has JM temple.
