This really looks like a genuine ancient cave temple where you need to bend to enter. There is natural water dropping on the Shivling constantly which is nature's way of 24/7 abhishek. It has a lot of steps so the elderly may find it difficult...More

Supposed to be the place where Dronacharya meditated, this temple can be dated thousands of years back in history. Located near the banks of river, one can well imagine how this place would have looked like thousands of years back and thats the reason perhaps...More

The temple is a cave. But the walkway is cleanly laid out in marble. This I found quite convenient. There is a fresh feeling once you enter, though restoration and construction work is going out outside. Clean stairs or steps go down to the river,...More

By 6 am the temple is generally opened. Mahant maharaj and many sadhus ar residing in the temple only, so there is no problem as such. But the place is bit isolated so better to visit in sunlight.
