About Bhartrihari Caves

Bhartrihari Caves are located on the banks of the Shipra River, proximate to Gadkalika Temple. The crystal clear water of the river adds charm to the site. It is believed that Bhartrihari relinquished the royal lifestyle and became an anchorite. The king’s troubled relation with his wife created complexities in their family life. Thus Bhartrihari was disappointed by his wife and left the palace. He decided to live saintly life and settled at the caves. He meditated for a long time inside these caves. Bhartrihari is crowned as a great poet and scholar. Shringarshatak, Vairagyashatak and Nitishatak are exquisite works written by him. He made fine use of Sanskrit language in his compositions. You can realise the despair of broken heart in the caves which exalts the feelings of a true lover. The walls of these are decorated with paintings and sculptures which reveal various ancient things and facts. Bhartrihari caves have a small temple which is a holy pilgrimage centre for the Nath community. The shrine of PirMatsyendranath is located in proximity of the caves. These caves attract thousands of people every year. You will find clusters of Nath sadhus sitting around fires performing the religious rituals and enchanting hymns.
