Constructed by Swami Nityanand, the caves (44 in number) have been carved out of a single hillock for the purpose of meditation. Worth visiting.

I was on my way back from Nileshwar to Bekal when i decided to stop by the ashram. My mother has been here with her friends and she talks about the caves and the peace they offer. Hence we decided to take a look at it! This place is a couple of km south from the city center of Kanhangad in front of an old ruined fort (ironically called hosa durga - new fort in Kannada, my mother says that all the other forts in the district were constructed before this one and hence this is called the new fort). When you enter the ashram, you see a structure on your left, shaped into steps and formations and painted red. We walked straight to reach an open canopy where few sadhus were sitting. A person in charge led us to the entrance of the caves after ensuring that our mobiles were on silent. Now the structure that you saw earlier is a huge rock, which the founder of the ashram converted into a number of caves between the period 1931 and 43 apparently. The caves have a lot of walkways (all mostly dark, with stream of light filtering in from far away openings), enough for a lot of people to sit down and meditate. We found a person meditating in one of the small enclosures in the dark. The area smelt of bat excreta and hence we came out fast. The next room we saw was a private room used by the founder (?) and the first disciple. A lot of their personal belonging and photographs are preserved and their life stories and well narrated through pictures and writings. We were given palm-lets of knowledge that guru tried passing on to the world and books for further reading. On our way back, my parents climbed the hill to pay respects at the temple of the guruji. Since it was too hot and sunny, i paid my respects from underneath a tree outside the canopy and bid adieu to the place
