Approach is not very comfortable . One has to go down the hilly , rocky narrow lanes to see and come back. Not recommended for aged and people with breathing problems.

A very beautiful feeling when you enter the cave and close your eyes. Appreciate the marvels that nature creates - Sedimentary rocks with layers of sediments, a piece of rock held between two ridges and a pool of water underneath.

Its just 10 mins from main bus stand. Even at walkable distance. Take a walk from the outside as you can see a lot of rock formations on the way. There are a lot of tribal people selling herbal medicines and various oils and honey. I did buy garlic oil and boy does it work. Couldn't find any proof their... More

We took a small trek to reach Jatashankar. A low height cave temple with a lot of mystic stories. Definitely worth a visit, they have well built stairs to go down till the temple and not much of a problem for people who can take 200-300 stairs.

It is a cave inside the ground and is a good visit. Also what surprised me is the natural herbal medicines being sold and I did purchase a few of them like the garlic oil and onion oil and believe me they really work, worth a try. My wife had warts and they all fell off.....

Just get down from the car, walk for a few hundred metres and the total surrounding magically changes. It's a reclusive place surrounded by hills. We had to climb down around a hundred steps and reached the Jatashankar cave, a natural one, believed to be as a place where Lord Shiva left his jata (the tangled hair). Inside the cave... More

Jatashankar is a nice place, but there will be a few - 200 or so - steps to get down there. It is a scenic spot, I think, and the few midget-sized stalagmites have been hyped into swayambhu lingams by the religious types. Still, I did enjoy visiting but don't expect any ancient temple or stunningly beautiful statue of a... More

Need to go down the hills, cleanliness needed over the area. Take guide if needed but you need to do lot of bargaining.
