Tapkeshwar Mahadev Temple: a Natural Wonder

After the thrilling trip to the Sahastradhara Heights, we went to pay a visit to the renowned Tapkeshwar temple of Dehradun. It is a very famous landmark of the city and a place with a lot of spiritual and historical significance. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Hindu deity and God of destruction, the main Shivlingam of the temple is situated in a natural cave and this makes the temple a wonder of nature. Droplets of water fall from the cave on the Shivlingam making it a purely divine sight.
The place is located on the banks of the river which adds many dimensions to its beauty. The place has a legend it is said that during the Mahabharata War, the place was resided by Dronacharaya and the Kauravas, and hence the cave where the Shiva Lingam is situated is also known as the Drona cave. The temple is located about just 6 kilometres from the main city and daily thousands of pilgrims come to pay homage to the deity.
