Mawjymbuin Cave, Shillong

4.1
#4 of 18 in Parks in Shillong
Dare to enter Mawjymbuin Cave to view stalagmites shaped as a Shiva Linga, which makes the site a sacred place for Hindu people. Despite the cave's large size, some narrow hallways can cause claustrophobic feelings. Plan my trip to Shillong with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
