Tapkeshwar Mahadev, Uttarakhand

Tapkeshwar Mahadev Temple is one unique place near to the city of Dehradun, Uttarakhand. The Tapkeshwar Mahadev temple is located on the banks of the river Asana, a fast flowing river.

The Tapkeshwar Mahadev temple is very unique with the statues located inside the natural cave from where drops of water keep dripping thereby giving it the name "Tapkeshwar" temple, surprising fact is that nobody knows from where the water is falling through all these years continously. May that is greatness of God! (As per MYTHOLOGY, in Ancient time milk use to drop from Cave roof to Lord Shiva Linga). It is also believed Guru Dhronacharya also lived there and did meditation during his early days, thats why dehradun is also called Drone City. The Major festival is held Tapkeshwar Mahadev Temple on Shivratri day.

Tapkeshwar Mahadev Temple is about 30 km from Jolly Grant Airport Dehradun, about 10 km from ISBT Dehradun and about 7.5 km from Railway Station Deharadun.
