What was once a cave hideout for tigers, is now a series of mystifying limestone caves and jungle cliffs that are filled with temples and shrines.

Though tigers have long left the area, there’s always that imagination at the back of your mind that a tiger might just leap out of the bushes at any moment and attack you.

A highlight of visiting the temple is climbing the 1,237 strenuous staircase steps to the top of the cliff for a view over the entire region.
