Meghna Cave Temple, among the popular temples of the region, is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple is visited during the celebrations of Shivratri.

It is a rock cave temple with two tunnels. The tunnels are located at the backside and towards the left side of cave wall. The first one starts from the back wall of the cave at a place about 1.80 mtrs high from the platform reached by stairs. The opening of the tunnel is big and allows single person to enter. But gradually it becomes so narrow that a person has to crawl for further entry. The interior of the tunnel is extremely dark. There are several niches in the passage where three or four persons can stand together. The second tunnel on the left appears to be an extension of the cave. The ceiling of this tunnel is about 0.90 mtrs from the floors of the cave
