Two different caves of Tilopa and Naropa are  Cave is considered as the holy site because the cave is the place where Naropa received training and teaching from his Guru Tilopa and he had visions of Vajrayogini here. Tilopa, his Guru, also meditated in the cave just next to it. Vajrayogini appeared again and again to the Great Mahasiddha Naropa giving teachings. Naropa, after practicing these teachings attained perfect knowledge and wisdom.
