Halesi Maratika Mahadev Cave Tour is one of the most popular sacred temples of Nepal. Located in eastern Nepal at Khotang District and between the two holy rivers Dudh Koshi and Sunkoshi, this temple is as famous as Pashupatinath and Lumbini even internationally. The two feet tall linga of Lord Shiva lies inside a naturally made, beautiful cave which is believed to be in existence for 6000 years. There are other small caves too that are dark and a resident of bats. There are two pillars close to each other on the north of Shiva Linga that creates a narrow passage. People believe a sinner would not be able to pass through it. This hilly region around the temple is full of natural beauty and cutural inheritance. Devotees visiting this temple believe to be blessed with knowledge and inner peace by the grace of Lord Shiva.
There are also other caves that are located next to the village of Mhadevsthan. 185 km south west of Mt. Everest, this beautiful cave is capable of occupying thousands of monks inside it for meditation. This cave is called Maratika cave. Maratika Cave is one of the six supreme pilgrimage sites of Buddhist around the globe. This was the exact holy spot where Padmasambhava who is the founder of Tibetan Buddhism, the great Rinpoche with his wife Mandarava meditated and freed themselves from the circle of lives and became immortal. That is why, this cave is believed to enlighten the visitors with spiritual peace and relaxation.
