Tapkeshwar Mandir Dehradun

Dehradun

Tapkeshwar Temple (or mandir in Hindi), one of the most famous temples, is also known as Tapkeshwar Mahadev Temple which is located in Dehradun, Uttarakhand. This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple is in forest area and the main shivalinga is in a natural cave.  The most tantalizing feature of the temple is the continuous  trickling down of water on shivlinga due to the structure of cave that covers from the top.

The legend says that Dronacharya once resided in this cave; who is known for being teacher of Pandavas and Kauravas in Mahabharat. The cave is thus known as Drona cave after his name.

The distance of the cave is around 5 km from the centre (Clock Tower) of the city. A festival is held annually on Shivratri; many people from Dehradun and surrounding areas visit this holy place on the auspicious day of Shivratri. The place is also a scenic place and tourists can feel the wilderness and uniqueness due to its geographical features.

The beautiful temple is located between the two hills that attracts thousands of tourists annually from inside and around Dehradun.

This place is also very popular among picnickers, students, and families.

The once famed city of senior retired officials is now transforming into a vibrant cosmo city full of life…… read more.
