As per the belief of the people, the ancient cave temple was once gilded with gold. The same place, where the Lingam of Lord Shiva is set now-a-days, was used by Lord Shiva for meditation. When a shepherd tried to steal gold from the cave, Lord Shiva himself transformed gold layers into rock.

These rock formations, which look jutting out from the rock, provides a good look to the interior of this ancient cave temple.
