Located in north of Pachmarhi in low height cave, you can feel very cool in the cave as water is dripping from the roof. Dedicated to lord Shiva.

Must visit place of lord shiva. 0.5 km downside of hill but comfortable stairs. Pachmari trip without visiting this place is waste of money.

Another 'ling' of Lord Shiva, this place is actually for Hindu enthusiasts to worship their deity or foreigners who want to enlighten themselves with Indian mythology. One of the many small small site seeings around Pachmarhi

Jatashankar in the Pachmarhi is a must go place because there is a beautiful temple and one can find a peaceful atmosphere to sit and meditate.

Jata Shanker is situated at lower side which is around 0.5 km lower side from main road. The steps are easy and on way there are various shops. On way there is Temple of Lord Hanumanji amd Gov Shala. Jata Shanker is in a little cave and there is cold water coming from Hill. There is history for this place.... More

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.

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.
