Tapkeshwar Temple Travel

The holy abode of Lord Shiva, The Tapkeshwar is a famous cave temple in Dehradun. Placed in the banks of a rivulet, this temple turned out to be one among the busiest pilgrim centers in the hilly resort.

The river pierce in to the cave and the water droplets dribble from the rocks on the Shiv Linga presents an imposing spectacle, which gives an ethereal feeling. The Tapkeshwar Temple in Dehradun gains its name 'Tapakeswar' from this natural dribbling of river water over the deity from the ceilings of the cavern. Cool sulphur springs around the temple with therapeutic value make it a superb dipping spot for pilgrims.

This cave temple is also known as the 'Guchhu Pani', which can be reached only after the tiring walking of more than a kilometer. The tranquility surrounds the temple sooths the tiresome voyage and the simple Darshan itself make the devotee spell bound. Legend says that it was from this cave that Lord Shiva poured milk to Ashwathama, the son of Dronacharya. This picture book site is to be visited during the time of Shivaratri, when large gathering throng here to participate the holy matrimony of Shiva with Parvathi.
