Situated on the outskirts of Chitrakoot, to the south of Ram Ghat, the cavern temple of Gupt Godavari comprises two mountain caves with knee-high level of water. It is said that the water is connected to River Godavari underground. Walking barefoot through the caves with the cold water lapping at your knees is a delightful experience. The larger cave has two stone-carved thrones believed to be of Lord Rama and Lord Lakshmana. Legend has it that Lord Rama and Lord Lakshman stayed here for some time during their exile. At that time, many gods came to Chitrakoot to meet Lord Rama. Godavari, the river goddess, is also believed to have visited him by secretly appearing in the caves.

Another attraction is the Panchmukhi Shiva located outside the cave. It features an intricately carved sculpture of the holy trinity (Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva). There are a number of souvenir shops here as well.
