Pataleshwar Cave Temple

Erected just across the river near the Jungli Maharaj Road, the Cave Temples of Pataleshwar have a resemblance to the rock carvings of Ellora. The Shiva Temple here is the main feature of the caves. The statue of the Nandi bull is also famous here. The temple is said to have been built out of a single rock and also has round rock structures arranged in an exotic manner here. In the other temples of these caves you will find the idols of Rama, Sita and other gods and goddesses. There is also a nice seating arrnagement for visitors inside. Another important attraction here is the museum which has its name in the Guiness World Record Book because of that one grain of rice inside this museum. This grain of rice has 5000 characters inscribed on it.
