There was a story about, how did a cow found lord shiva. One day a cow was grazing on the top of the caves, then suddenly it got slipped and dropped about 200ft through the hole on the roof. When the cowherd is searching for it, he found a stone inside the caves which resembles the lingam, than he thought the lord shiva protected the cow somehow.
The tribal people after listening this story, they believed it and built a small temple for lord shiva outside the cave. From then more people started visiting the caves and temple to get the glimpse of that lingam.
