A small cave which has been modified a lot to loose its originality. Small children and older people can no way enter. Can be skipped if on a tight schedule.

It has ancient history attached as it is believed Sita stayed inside this cave hideout. A very narrow opening making entry possible only by crawling & the beauty is it is slopy. It makes one's breath intense by the time they come out of the thinly ventilated cave after Darshan.

Its worth to visit the Gumpha, but I wont recommend it to older people who face problems related to back and joints since it a gumpha you have to bend down and sit stand a lot, but for people who can do it its a must go.
