  • Patal Bhuvaneshwar (Hindi पाताल भुवनेश्वर) is a limestone cave temple 14 km from Gangolihatin the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhandstate in India. It is located in the village Bhubneshwar. Legend and folklore have it that this underground cave enshrines Lord Shiva and thirty three koti Gods (33 crores types of gods in hindu culture). The cave is 160 m long and 90 feet deep from the point of entrance. Limestone rock formations have created various spectacular stalactite and stalagmite figures of various hues and forms. This cave has a narrow tunnel-like opening which leads to a number of caves. The cave is fully electrically illuminated. Built by the flow of water, Patal Bhuvaneshwar is not just one cave, rather a series of caves within caves. "He who wants to feel the presence of eternal power should come to the sacred Bhuvneshwar situated near the confluence of Ramganga, Sarayu and Gupt-Ganga." -Manaskhanda, Skandapuran, whose 800 verses refer to Patal Bhuvaneshwar
  • Very nice place.... new adventures thing to explore All hindu gods are crafted inside the cave....
  • Its really amazing and surprising. it's about 50 meter deep inside through a narrow path then a huge hall having 3 different wide open path. whole cave is devoted to hindu religion as all pattern and structures are relevant to hindu god n goddess. I hv visited thrice there.
  • It is also a good place to visit, the cave in which Lord shiva's Jadaa there and there 33 crore devtas are residing is true.
