Rameshwar Mahadev Cave Temple, old woman

 

Rameshwar is a cave temple of Lord Shiva, around 20 km from Bundi. The temple is surrounded by Aravalli ranges from three sides.

 

Rameshwar Mahadev is a swayambhu (i.e. "self-manifested") idol within a cave. It was discovered approximately 500 years ago by a priest from Baghera village, Rajasthan. Since then devotees started visiting for prayers and offerings.

 

It is said that many saints achieved spiritual power and enlightenment in this cave and even today many people have seen the existence of spiritual powers. There is a Dhuni (sacred site represented as a cleft in the ground) outside the cave where fire is seen sometimes even today.

 

Rameshwar is also famous for a natural waterfall.
