Visit to Tapkeshwar (cave temple) is a unique experience. Thousands of pilgrims visit this temple round the year to pay homage where they can see water dripping at Sivling. Though to visit this Shiva temple, you have to negotiate narrow roads, but it is worth.

By 6 am the temple is generally opened. Mahant maharaj and many sadhus ar residing in the temple only, so there is no problem as such. But the place is bit isolated so better to visit in sunlight.
