The kavala-caves_400_300(Kavaleshwar Temple) is located opposite the Nagzari Power House near Ambikanagar (40 Kms from Haliyal) on the ridge of top hill amidst thick forest surroundings. It is the outcome of a combination of stalactite and stalagmite, which has resulted in an upward growing conical formation on the floor formed due to the dripping from the roof rock. This is locally called “Shivalinga”.
