The Vyaas cave lies at the confluence of the Shukla. (Seti river) and Mahendri (Madi river) is one of the main tourist attractions in Tanahu. Vedvyas, who is known as the author of the Hindu epic “Mahabharat” and who classified the Vedas is believed to have been born here and it’s the reason this place holds special signification for Hindus. It is considered to be the meditation grounds for Maharishi Parashar. Considered a sacred pilgrimage site by Hindus on auspicious days according to the lunar calendar such as Haribodhini Ekadashi, Shrawan Sakranti and Makar Sakranti draw thousands of visitors to the area.
