Uksan village is surrounded by water from the Uksan dam on all three sides. On the hills near this village, there is 2 ancient cave which is less visited by people. The name of these caves, Uksan and Pal, has fallen on nearby villages.
Digging natural cavity below 50-60 feet from the head of the mountain & carved 3m height, 4m length, and 10m depth approx.
On the left side of the Uksan cave’s entrance, carved large part in a square shape in which a single person can sit easily. Besides an artificial cave is carved. The last phase of the cave appears to be carved in the circular shape.
When you came out of the cave, you see the beauty of the Uksan lake.
Pal caves near Pale village, need to climb for approx. 20 minutes on the left side of the village. Even though the Pal caves look like a Uksan cave, there is a lot to see in it. The cave has also been dug in about 10 meters. After a few steps inside the caves, the steps are seen, the side of it is about 3 feet deep water tank.
In particular, there is an inscription from a Brahmi script on it; Perhaps the article should be in line with that water tank.
