The Bateshwar Valley is situated one and a half kilometer from Padavali. There are more than a hundred temples in the valley but most of them are worn and torn, There are two water pounds providing drinking and bathing water and the scenery around is so fascinating as if one is roaming in the paradise. It is believed  that these statues located here  are not human made but rhter they were created , shaped and deformed by the nature itself. Half Kilometer from Bateshwar we comes across a majestic temple at hill top. peoples here are amazed to see the erotic panel of the temple
