Kalpeshwar

KalpeshwarA favourite spot for sages who come here to meditate, following the precedent of Arghya who performed austerities and created the celebrated nymph, Urvashi, here, and the irascible Durvasa who meditated under the wish fulfilling tree, Kalpavriksha. Pilgrims pray at the small rock temple at a height of 23,134 mts. before the matted tresses of Shiva enshrined in rock in the sanctum sanctorum. The sanctum is preceded by a natural cave passage. Surrounded by thick forests and terraced fields in the Urgam valley, the temple is reached following a 10 kms long trek.
