Kedeshwar Cave

There are three main caves near the temple. Harishcheshwar is a huge cave of Kedeshwar on the move to the temple, in which there is a large Shiva Ling, which is completely surrounded by water. From its base, its height is five feet, and Shiva has four water whose depth is about 3 feet. It is difficult to reach Shiva Ling because the water is quite cold and feedback. Here are carved sculptures. It is not possible to reach this cave in the monsoon, because a huge water flows on the way. Shiva is a huge rock above the penis. Shiva became four columns around the penis. Nobody really knows about these columns, but it is said that these columns have to show four 'ages' of life - 'Truth Age', 'Treta Age', to show 'Dwapar era' and 'Kaliyug' had gone. When an era comes at the end of your time, it is said that a column breaks. Three columns have already broken. The general belief is that the current phase is 'Kaliyug' and the day the fourth pillar will be broken - it will be considered the last day of the present era.
