Situated in the Ananthagiri mandal of the Visakhapatnam area in Andhra Pradesh are perhaps the biggest cavern of the nation known as Borra Caves.
Found by William King George of the Geological Survey of India, these one multi year old caverns pull in gigantic number of visitors consistently and have gotten one of the significant attractions of Vizag. Situated at a height of 1400 m above ocean level, these lovely buckles are a visual treat to the vacationers.
There are a few legends in regards to the revelation of the caverns among the tribals living here. As per a well known legend, Borra caverns were found when a cowherd while looking for his lost dairy animals ran over these caverns. He found a Shiva Lingam inside the cavern and accepted that Lord Shiva has spared his cow.
The townspeople manufactured a little sanctuary outside the cavern which is visited by the individuals coming here. Another prevalent view is that the Shiva Lingam discovered here had a stone arrangement of cow above it and the udder of this cow is accepted to be the hotspot for Gosthani stream that moves through the Vizag city.
Borra Caves were framed because of the progression of Gosthani River on the limestone stores. These caverns are known for the stunning stalactite and stalagmite developments, for example, Shiva-Parvathi, Rishi’s Beard, Mother-Child, Crocodile, Human Brain, Tiger and Cows udder.
