The Big and Small Taevaskoda on the banks of the Ahja River is one of the most beautiful places in Estonia comprising of the sandstone outcrops surrounded by coniferous forests. The Big Taevaskoda, the highest of the two outcrops, is up to 22.5 metres high from the sea level; however, the brink of the valley is even up to 38 metres high. Upwards of the Big Taevaskoda are the Väike Taevaskoda and several small cliffs that are part of the Ahja River landscape reserve.
Spring waters have eroded two caves in the outcropping. A spring called Emaläte (Mother’s Spring) flows out of the first of them; the other cave is called Neitsikoobas (Maiden’s Cave). Taevaskoda with its beautiful and interesting nature attracts hikers from far and wide.
