Patal Bhuvaneshwar is a very ancient temple of Lord shiva situated inside the cave. It is situated at an elevation of 1653 metres above the sea level. The cave of Patal bhuvaneshwar is 160 m long and 90 m deep from the mouth of cave.
 The entrance to Patal bhuvaneshwar cave looks very compact and suffocated but believe me after entering the cave you will feel real fresh air inside and no suffocation at all.
I was amazed to see the figures of god and hindu deities carved naturally on the walls and rocks of the cave.

The mysterious cave of Patal Bhuvaneshwar is believed to be as old as the Earth itself. There is a very narrow tunnel leads to this centuries old cave. Inside the cave there are complex structures of  rocks and carved images of  various gods can be seen. Almost every God that one would have heard of resides in this mysterious cave.
One can see a big rock similar to mythological character "Sheshnag" inside the cave holding Earth on its head. After going further one can see the rock inscribed "Kalp vraksh", "Airavat hathi" of Indra king, hairs of Lord Shiva.
There are 4 pillars inside the cave that depicts Kalyuga, Satyuga, Dwaparyuga, Tretayuga. The height of the pillar of Kalyuga above the floor is 3 feet above the surface. Acoording to Skanda Purana, when the Kalyuga's pillar will touch the above rock ( galaxy) then the Kalyuga will end. Right now, there is 1.5 feet distance between Kalyuga's pillar and galaxy rock.
There are internal caves as well inside this cave. It is also believed that the internal caves are connected to char dhams of India.

There is one more route that gets detached 20 km ahead of Almora, instead of going to Berinag road one has to go in Almora- Pithoragarh road, on this route there is the Jageshwar Dham, jageshwar dham is among the 12 jyotirlingas.
The distance from both the routes is almost equal i.e 180 kms.
This route is very beautiful. The route to Patal Bhuvaneshwar from Jageshwar is as follows:
Jageshwar- Danya- Panar- Dooni.- Gangolihat - Patal Bhuvaneshwar.
The second route is best if visiting Gangolihat prior to Patal Bhuvaneshwar.

 If you are coming from the road  then the Delhi - Rampur - Moradabad - Rudrapur road is best, there is four lane highway till Rampur and beyond that 2 lane highway till Kathgodam (Haldwani).
