A Shiva Linga of about five feet is situated at the centre of the cave. One has to wade through waist deep and ice cold water to reach the Shiva Linga. Though there were four pillars surrounding the Linga, now there is only one pillar intact. Some believe the pillars to be symbols of yuga or time, namely, Satya, Tretha, Dwapara and the Kali Yuga. The present pillar is said to symbolise the last and final yuga, which is the present one, the Kali Yug. Thus a belief exists that when this last and remaining pillar breaks off, the world will come to an end. The walls of the cave are replete with sculptures and carvings.
 
4 poles in four directions and surrounded by 4 feet deep water. In the west side the Shiva puja scene carved on the wall about 6 feet hight and in the middle there is inner chamber carved where 4-6 persons can sit comfortably and perform puja and chanting. This cave located on the bank of Holy River Malganga which is known as Mula at the base villages.
 
Reaching the Shivalinga is quite difficult as the water is ice-cold. It is not possible to visit the temple during monsoon season as huge streams of water flow towards the temple.
