The place is not artificial creation it’s a gift of nature. There are mysterious caves, which are believed to be the three eyes of lord Shiva, as we see in the first cave we see an image of lord Shiva which is called as Haleshwar Mahadev. In the second cave there is an image of Nandi. the cave knows Basaha Gupha. And there is an image of Bhairav and in the third cave. Among these three mysterious caves the first one with the image of Lord Shiva is the main part of the temple. There is a big red murti [ stone ] which is worshiped as Gaura Parbata. It is believed to be a joint image of Gauri and Parbati. This cave is in the depth at the bottom of the cave there is the image of Mahadev made of stone. It is about two and half feet long. There is also statue ‘Linga’ of Mahadev which is nearly two and half feet high up from the ground but the base of the statue leads to the next cave through a small hole. It is called Basaha Gupha. The base of the statue is full of water; above the statue in the cliff there is an image of cows’ udder from which white drops fall on to the statue. It is believed that Kamadhenu (Cow in the heaven who can fulfill the desires wishes if asked) is worshipping the god by offering her milk.
