The cave at Dayalekh in Nuwakot-2 throws light to the jungle of Dayalekh, RSS reports.
The eight-meter deep and four-meter wide cave also consists of old stones carved out in the shape of Lord Shiva, Ganesh and a cow, and arts and shapes of various kinds.
The cave was reportedly discovered by herdsmen as they were taking goats for grazing inside the jungle.
Meanwhile, marking the Shivaratri festival, the Dayalekh Cave Protection Committee organized a fair at the cave premises.
The cave will now be preserved in order to support tourism promotion in the area, says local Bir Bahadur Khadka.
