About Tapkeshwar Temple

Tapkeshwar Temple is known to be one of the most religiously prominent attractions in the city of Dehradun. It is situated at a small distance from the heart of the city and is very conveniently accessible. It is believed that the temple got its name from the fact that there is an invisible leakage on the ceiling of the temple which gives way to water dripping down the Shiva Linga, and disappearing when it reaches the surface. Dripping water is called ‘tapak’ in Hindi which gives the name Tapkeshwar to the temple. The temple is surrounded by natural beauty from all sides and situated on the banks of River Tons. It is located inside a cave and also features a beautiful waterfall, which adds to its aesthetic beauty. One of the most significant stories associated with this temple is that it was home to Sage Dronacharya and his wife. When his child Ashwathama was born, milk started dripping from the Shiva Linga to feed the baby owing to the powers of Lord Shiva.
