Considered very religious by the Hindus, this cave has a main hall and a small sanctum with a Shivalingam. It is believed that it was here where Shankaracharya met the great saint Govinda Bhagwatpad and he took spiritual education and his deeksha under him.
It is also believed that Shankaracharya saved the town from a big flood by forcing the river water into a kamandal (small bowl), which he had placed near the mouth of the cave. He did this to also save his Guru as he was emerged into a Samadhi in the cave.
