  • Definitely a must see destination. Very Serene and the view of the village from top is breathtaking. This place is still not popular with tourists but its an off beat destination for the serious and travelers looking for new experience. The shiv ling inside the cave is always moist with dripping water. The origin is still a mystery. Nearest Railway station is Banda , Uttar Pradesh
