Legend states that Guru Rinpoche flew to the site atop the back of a tigress and meditated in the cave for 3 years, 3 months, 3 days, and 3 hours in order to subdue evil demons residing within it. The cave has been considered a sacred site ever since and many famous yogis have traveled to meditate in it.
