Here is a mysterious non-violence tank behind the hill, which is called ‘Jainerd Talab’. This is the place where hunting and fishing are not possible. Here is a Shiv temple of the age of Chandelas (Similar to the temples in Khajuraho) which proves that all the Jain temples also belongs to Chandela’s era. Thousands of faithful and devoted pilgrims come here to have their wishes full filled.

Other Temples: There are three temples on the hill with five Vedis. There are a very old Siddh Gufa (Cave) and a beautiful Manistam just behind the temples.
