Belum Caves are situated in vicinity of the Belum Village. These are considered as the second largest caves in the country, after the Meghalaya Caves. The caves have three cavities, amongst which the central cavity serves as the entrance to the caves. These have numerous chambers, fresh water galleries and passages. The natural artworks formed by stalagmite and stalactite can be seen in the caves.

The musical chamber, simhadwaram, patalaganga, mandapam, meditation hall and banyan tree hall are the main sections of these caves. Patalganga is considered as the deepest section of the Belum Caves. The Government of India declared the Belum Caves as a 'Unique Eco-Tourism Project.'

Park your car, buy a ticket and walk, its a whole, new world inside those caves. There are wonders waiting inside India's second largest caves. Beautifully maintained, this is one underrated places in South India.

"One of the everlasting memories of a life time."

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Jun 29, 2014
In my experience of visiting sight seeing places, this is one of the everlasting memories of a life time. I have never seen this kind of place, what a creation by the Almighty, no match to his skill, the cave is indeed an adventure sight to explore yourself and you will have tons of surprises once u get into it. The "SIMHA DWARAM" is a real visual treat.
