Its an hindu temple.Beautiful and very old rock cut temple.The design of this temple resembles a lot with the design of the caves of Elephenta island.We can visit this temple in day time only not after 6 o" clock evening.One of the major highlights of this temple is Shiva Linga Pooja which is performed with much ardour and fervour.
