Mawjymbuin Cave, Shillong Overview

Mawjymbuin Cave is situated in Mawjymbuin village in Mawsynram (the wettest place on earth) in Cherrapunji and is a religiously significant site. Made of calcareous sandstones and having numerous stalagmites (formed as a result of calcium carbonate depositions, weathering and dripping of mineral enriched liquid), the 209-metre high cave is of special interest to geologists who conduct special researches here. The Mawjymbuin Cave is also thronged by naturalists, photographers, pilgrims and tourists alike.

A rock shaped structure arising from the earth, shaped like a shivalinga is the primary attraction of Mawjymbuin Cave and is highly revered by Hindus. It also has a thin stream flowing towards the eastern end of the cave. There are many rift entrances and passages to the Cave, some of which are tough to enter through.
