Amazing. It is a temple spread over a long stretch. Is very beautiful There is a huge statue of Hanuman ji, which seems very attractive to see. The atmosphere of the temple is quite peaceful which gives peace to the person's spirit.

Tapkeshwar maharaj is one of the most peaceful place to visit in Dehradun. We were amazed to visit the cave it has a small entrance and its a bit narrow cave. There is a waterbody as well inside the temple premises.

This is a nice temple in an ancient cave. There are other small temples adjacent to it. Very popular place and is crowded on holidays. Ample parking available. Stairs might not be comfortable for physically challenged and elderly.

This Temple is built in caves & cavities under the hills. Beautifully structured, the hugely expanded temple is a place to spare some time. The river, the bridge, the caves....almost everything is fascinating & soothing.

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.
