Gupteswar, a famous holy shrine of Lord Shiva lingam is situated in the cave inside the forest of Ramagiri Hills. It is a famous pilgrimage place of Koraput and Orissa (Odisha) Dist. which is about 45 Km. away from Jeypore and 450km from Bhubaneswar.
Surrounded with dense forest having rare big Sal trees and Saberi river makes the place even more interesting. There are many Kimbadanties (people’s sayings) attached with this pilgrimage place. Most interesting and renowned one is that the lingam was found out by the King of Jeypore in the year 1665. Since then it has been worshipped by the tribes. One can find other caves apart from the main cave of Gupteswar.
