  • Great trek. Ideal time to come in the morning around 8 before the sun is out in all its glory. Amazing walk up from ramnasram. Great place for some good meditation
  • On the way downhill from ashram . Ramana Maharshi stayed here in his early years . Quite place for meditation and reading books( available there)
  • Complete bliss The distance to cave from Ramana ashram is around 2 kms long. We actually started thinking it's near, but believe me it's quiet a long distance. And above the hill is a small ashram located with a meditation hall, and u are not supposed to use your mobile phones or speak loudly there. Infact I got scolded by one of the sadhus for speaking loudly :). On the way to cave there is point from where u can get a bird's view eye of the Temple. I have attached a photo that I took from there
  • A must visit place for the spiritually inclined! Peace and nature in plenty!
  • One of the best peaceful I ever felt
