Positioned 6.5 km away from the city of Dehradun, Tapkeshwar Temple is a famous Hindu pilgrimage spot.
The temple, nestled amidst green mountains and by the river Ganges, is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The Shivalinga enshrined inside the main complex is unique in that water has been continuously trickling on it since time immemorial, making it a fascinating spectacle to watch.
Legend has it that the famous Guru Dronacharya resided in the cave at one point of time. It is thus also known as the Drona cave. Thousands of visitors enchanted by the lush surroundings coupled with holy chants and ringing of bells, visit the temple every day.Places nearby:
