A descent of some 200 steps will take you to the Jata Shankar cave. Look above to see vertical sides of the sandstone mountain. You have to crouch to take a pradakshina in the cave temple. Lovely place.

Old rocks, we saw the Giant squirrel while going downwards to see the Shivling. You get amazing Lahsun ka Tel (Garlic oil) which helps in curing headaches even migraine to a great extent. We got our first small bottle from Jatashankar in 2009 and since then have been using the same for headaches.

An ancient temple, where you would find the hills in the shape of lion, Hanuman, snake. Numerous Shivlings are there inside the cave. Water keeps flowing inside it through out the year. Don't dare to go deep inside the cave as you may step on one of the snakes which live there.

As compared to Mahadeo, this one is just average. But decent in its own right. You may like steep edges of the mountains on both sides.

Jata Shankar, a cave temple of Lord Shiva is a must go place for Hindus. The temple has religious significance. The caves, rock formation, Shivling, the pond and the ambiance makes you feel you are in the presence of the god himself.
