about exploring the gupt godavari caves

Gupt Godavari is the name of two natural caves located about 18 km from the Chitrakoot region. The first one is a high and wide cave where a cave temple is established. The insides of the caves are well lit and might feel warm and damp. There are also places where if you look up you might find thousands of bats hanging from the ceiling.

At the entrance of the first cave, there are colourful carvings of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, along with other Gods and Goddesses. You will come across a huge rock outcropping which is believed to be the mortal remains of a demon killed by Lakshman, when he tried to steal devi Sita's clothes while she was taking a bath. Nearby, a small water reservoir is christened as Sita Kund, where Sita was believed to have taken baths. There are two huge rocks shaped roughly like thrones, where Rama and Lakshman were believed to hold court.

The second cave is longer and narrower and has a narrow stream flowing through it. The stream is believed to be Goddess Godavari who wished to meet Lord Rama, and thus took this underground route to reach this place. On entering , the stream is only ankle deep, but when you are well inside the cave, it reaches up to knee level. The water is crystal clear, and the cool sand underfeet feels especially wonderful.

Beautiful caves, the water is mostly up to the knees so you can get in there. Take an extra pair of clothes if you want to go deeper.
