Vaishnav Caves of Shiur

On the bank of Penganga river in Hadgaon taluka of Nanded district, about 70 km to the north of Nanded is a small village called Shiur. There is a group of three caves in a hill. The excavation has taken place during the Wakataka period. Caves are Vaishnav's religious people. Due to the lack of the proper type of rock, The sculptors may have left this sculpture in semi-state.

In 1958, the government recognized this site as a protected monument. These caves have a unique significance for the study of the Indian architecture The eagle is set on the pillar of the hall in the cave. In one cave, Brahma and Vishnu worshipping Shivling is a special sculpture.
