The cave is in the middle of the market in the city. It is accessed through a flight of steps in a well. The first level houses a shiva temple, which is considered sacred by the locals. You can go further into the cave through a narrow small passage. The cave is very humid here with water dripping from the... More

While Gupteshwar cave is great, the surroundings could improve vastly. The approach to the caves, the steps leading down could be cleaner. The cave leading to Devi's Fall is a natural marvel

Gupteshwar cave sounds interesting....... Gupteshwar Cave is regarded as sacred and inviolable by the local people. The cave is divided into two absolutely different parts. One carries the great Lord Shiva temple where a shivlinga, phallic symbol of Lord Shiva is preserved and it is believed that the linga is preserved the way it was originally discovered. The second part... More

Much more interesting than the nearby devi's fall: you can actually see the end of the waterfall deep within the cave. And it's a big cave! There js a supposedly natural statue of Shiva in the cave, and also a place where the devout can drink milk from a cow's statue. All-in-all an interesting sidetrip. Costs about 2 USD.

One has to go down a flight of stairs to reach the mouth of the cave, before you descend even lower. Please note that it will be muggy, slippery, wet, sometimes mildly smelly and ofcourse, very dark inside the cave. If you are even slightly claustrophobic, avoid it. But if you're not, carry on till the very end for stunning... More

We have visited Gupteswar Gupha on our way up to Peace Pagoda stupa and it is probably worth stopping if you are heading up there but don't expect too much - you won't see much for the money you pay but it is still worth giving a go.
