Babadera Cave is located at the foothills between Bhaibahen Hill and Budhikuten Hill near Pakelpada and is about 45 km distance from Jharsuguda city. According to history, many years ago a saint used to meditate in this Cave. Every day the saints conduct spiritual ceremonies in the Cave in which nearby villagers come and participate. Therefore, it was later named Babadera Cave. According to locals, the Bavadera cave is located in the forest and was home to many wild animals, which are believed to have killed the saint.
