In the wilderness of Pithoragarh district in Kumaon are located the mysterious cave temples of Patal Bhuvaneshwar. Formed due to the formation of stalactites and stalagmites, it is traditionally believed to be the abode of thirty three crore hindu deities and finds reference in the Skanda Purana. The cave temples were rediscovered by Adi Shankracharya and have since occupied a place of significance in Hindu religion.
The film Patal Bhuvaneshwar – Char Dhamo Ka Punya is an effort towards dissemination of information regarding these mystic cave temples to the pilgrims. It will also bring forth a larger number of not only pilgrims but also tourists holding an interest in culture and archeology.
