Ideal Time -1 Hrs/ Rating : 4.5 Out 5
Tapkeshwar: Tapkeshwar is a famous holy temple of Lord Shiva on the bank of seasonal Asan river near Dehradun. Known to have one of the oldest Shivling in the cave, Tapkeshwar Mahadev Temple is located at 6.5 km from Dehradun city. As water droplets continuously drops on the shivling, hence it was named as 'Tapkeshwar'.Advisable to visit from 6 AM to 7 PM

On Shri Hanumate Namah
Aug 2019 • Solo
Many, if not most come to visit the Lord Shiva cave, and that is certainly a rewarding experience. Across the river stands a very large statue of Lord Hanuman, which was my drawing card. You can park near the entrance and then descend down the car road or take a smaller path to the left. Both bring you to a large divided rail of steps, on one side the sadhus. Nearing the bottom you will see Lord Hanuman, then various other aspects of this location. The river, due to a Lot of heavy rain in the mountains was brown and turbulent. Go to the left for the cave.

A BEAUTIFUL SHRINE IN DEHRDHUN
May 2019 • Family
This is one of the main attractions of Dehradun.
It is situated a little out of the town. This serene Shiva temple is with natural rocks making the outer cover of shrine. The porous rocks present above the Linga makes drops of water to fall continuously on the Linga. Hence the name of the Shrine.
there are many other deities around the shrine making it a beautiful atmosphere.
Adjacent to this shrine there is a natural cave temple namely "Vishno devi" along with other Durga temples.
You have climb few steps to reach the entrance where the cave starts.
There is huge Hanuman Statue
The temple premises is maintained neatly with peaceful atmosphere.
A must see shrine in Dehradhun to get happoiness and satisfaction.

This is the place where Guru Dronacharya stayed for long & do "TAPASHYA". that's why the name is such, One of the main attractions of Dehradun. It is situated little out of the town by a stream. There is is a serene Shiva temple with natural rocks making the inner shrine of the temple. The porous rocks are aptly situated above the shivaling with drops of water falling continuously. Right next to it is a Durga temple with natural cave. A must visit of you lie on the religious side. There's an elevator for the knes who cannot descend a decent number of stairs to reach the temple
This is a place of worship as well as the place fir picnics for the locals. You can also soak your feet in the stream and relax.
