Agastya Cave, Yaganti

Yaganti has many places of historic importance apart from the Uma Maheswara Swamy Temple. From the table when one looks up from the temple, we can see several caves in the massive rocks surrounding the table. Even though most of them are inaccessible, there are 3 caves that are accessible.



These caves are sacred and one such important cave is Agastya Cave where it is believed that Sage Agastya had meditated. To reach the cave, one has to climb a series of steep steps and it is easy to climb them to reach the top without intermediate breaks. There is a small Shiva Linga inside the cave.



The light streamed in through the gaps in the cave and in the distance, The view of the temple from the stairs of these cave is amazing.

Interesting way of worshipping through caves... I don’t think it could be easy climbing those look alike tiny steps! But great capture and views

It seems that India has so many more sacred places than anywhere else in the world and these caves are something to behold!

I like caves as long as they are not too narrow :)
