  • Beautiful place!! Ideal place for lord shiv's temple. The temple is placed in a narrow cave which is situated in the heart of sahyadri mountain. There are around 500 stairs from the place where you park your car. Best season to visit this place is monsoon or winter. There is a huge waterfall as well near to this temple. We can have glimpse of it while walking towards the temple.
  • Really nice place.. better to visit in winter season... But beware of monkeys.. they would snatch off your bags at the blink of an eye... Temple is situated on mountain top.. in a cave.. nice experience.. visit once and you would like to go again....
  • Beautiful spiritual shiva temple and gorgeous waterfalls side by temple. Easy to climb around 300 steps. Just off main road but fairly maintained road. Must visit if its on the way.
  • Excellent place to go in monsoon. You need to climb 800 steps to reach there. One can see and enjoy breathtaking waterfall.
  • I love to roam around during rains. This place on my list since long because of waterfall and Shiva temple in natural cave. Speciality of this waterfall is it flows throuout the year. Surrounded by sahaydris.. Waterfalls... Natural river by side... Very pleasant drive throughout journey.
