It's a temple on caves, so you need to descend and see the current worshippers. It's totally worth. Nature and religion together.

This is an amazing place where you can see mythology unfold before you. The caves and the natural formations are mind blowing. A surreal place .... where the level of your experience would depend on your sensitivity

It can be a great visit for the religious minds. A stone which is believed to be lord Shiva's Jata is worshipped here. It is situated in a natural cave. The whole big rock that houses the cave, itself is nice to look at.

This Shiv temple is located in hill. The path is not smooth and you have to go very deep. But you will refresh to see the water source & Shiv Temple. The entire environment was cool & peaceful.
