Vyas Cave is one of the historical, mythological and religious tourist attraction and a must see place to visit while on Badrinath Dham pilgrimage. Vyas Gupha (Vyas Cave) is named after famous saint Muni Vyas. The commended cave is where legendary Vyas Muni, a sage who spoke the entire epic of Mahabharata to god Ganesh, who noted it down while Vyas Muni was speaking. Vyas Gupha is located near the confluence of Alaknanda and Saraswati, known as Keshaprayag. Legend goes that the great sage Vyas composed Mahabharata and Shrimad Bhagvad Gita here. A massive rock resembling the records of a manuscript piled one over the other lying on the outskirts of the cave is known as Vyas Pustika. A unique thing about this ancient cave is that no outside sound, how noisy, can reach inside the cave. In this way, it is one of the perfect spots to ruminate. The hermitage of Sage Vyas lies on the western bank of Saraswati and it was here that he taught Bhagvad Gita to his son Shukracharya who recited to king Parikshit, grandson of Mahabharata’s hero Arjuna. Sage Vyas dedicated his verses to Lord Ganesh who is said to have lived in the nearby cave known as Ganesh Gupha (Ganesh Cave).
