OM NAMOH SHIVAY
History : Once in ancient times, Lord Shiva was in deep meditation in this cave. At that time, the natural pillars that can be now seen around the Lingam of Lord Shiva, were of gold. Exactly above the Lingam of Lord Shiva was the shelter of the Lord Sheshnag (divine king of snakes). At that time, milk used to pour out of the mouth of the Lord Sheshnaga to the hairs of Lord Shiva, as if Lord Sheshnaga has spread hood of thousand mouths. At that time a shepherd came grazing his cattle in this dense forest and entered the cave. Seeing the golden pillars, greed crept to the heart of shepherd. Shepherd thought to cut some gold out of the pillars and take the same away while old man (Lord Shiva) was asleep. The shepherd cut some gold and came out of the cave. When he came out of the cave, he became blind. However when he would leave the piece of gold in the cave, he could see again. He tried this many times and every time with piece of gold with him, he would become blind and without piece of gold he could see again. When in meditation, Lord Shiva saw that the shepherd was committed to take the gold with him, Lord Shiva cursed him and shepherd along with all his cattle turned into stones. Lord Shiva thought that if such kind of things could happen in Satyuga, when 'Dharma' was at its peak, even worse would happen in times to come. Thus he converted the golden pillars into stones. Similarly in place of milk, water started pouring out of the mouths of Sheshnaga.
THIS CAVE HAS BEEN PRESERVED IN SAME NATURAL FORM.
