These caves carry inscription in Pali language, which was written and spoken around 2000 years back. He was here during the reign of the Baghel ruler Virbhanusingh, who apparently became a disciple of saint kabir. Dharamdas, the wealthiest merchant of Bandhavgarh, was also his follower. The monuments with which kabir is associated are the kabir temple and kabir Talab seen over here, and kabir gufa, a place where he meditated for several years, situated about 2 km from here.

KABIR MELA
The Kabir Panth (sect) began organizing its first mela. It has now become a regular feature of Bandhavgarh. The festival is held in honor of Kabir, a 16th century holy man who lived on the premises of Bandhavgarh Fort. The Follower of Kabir Panth Comes here in a large amount. They use Charanganga stream for all their daily rituals. Most people stayed for several nights, living without proper toilet facilities. According to the Forest Department, more than 14,000 people entered from Tala gate. They walked all the way up to the fort temple and Kabir Chaura. Bamboos were cut for walking sticks. At the fort, there is a Kabir temple where the saint spent most of his time and meditated more often and took discourses for some of his very close disciples. Dharam Das Naam Sahib was one of his first disciples who was initiated at the Bandhavgarh fort . There is also an interesting story as to how Kabir gave his salutation to whole Central India. When Kabir arrived in Bandhavgarh, Maharaja of Rewa did not know how to greet him as Kabir was not a Brahmin by birth and the Maharaja could not have touched his feet.
