This place is also called gupt mahadeo and it can be easily visited after bada mahadeo. The upward way to Chauragarh temple and fort starts from here. It took me 10 minutes to get darshan even on a crowded Monday.

Place is very narrow and you need to move sideways to go inside and see Shiva temple. Group of 5 - 6 peoples are allowed inside at a time as there is no place inside to even turn if more people enters together.
