Turnback Cave is home to the legendary Pokémon, Giratina. In Platinum, after beating or catching Giratina in the Distortion World, a portal will bring to Sendoff Spring. Until you beat her, Cynthia will be blocking the entrance to Turnback Cave.
To get there, you must go to Veilstone City. Then, you go to the south exit, which is Route 214. Go down a bit, then go to the little opening you see to the east. Run east and north on that path until you reach Sendoff Spring. There are two places to use Rock Climb. Go to the one east of the two trees. After using Rock Climb, go across and back until you reach another place where you can use Rock Climb, then go down there, and go in the cave, and you're in.
Once inside, you have to go room to room, choosing one of four directions, in order to find a total of three pillars. Upon finding the third pillar, any entrance you choose will lead to the room where Giratina awaits you. You can battle it by interacting with it, or if you have finished the battle and go back, that room also contains 1 of 4 daily items, depending on how fast you got there: Reaper Cloth, Nugget, Rare Bone or Stardust. Every room is filled with fog, apart from the room with the portal. Apart from the first, last and pillar-containing rooms, all rooms have breakable rocks.
You can go through a maximum of 30 rooms before being sent back to the beginning, or you can go through the same door as you entered the room through.
If you are playing Platinum, there will be a portal to the Distortion World in the final room. If Giratina fainted in the Distortion World at Spear Pillar, it will reappear here, but as its Altered Forme, and the portal cannot be accessed until you defeat, flee from, or catch Giratina. Entering this portal will take you to a new, small section of the Distortion World where you can acquire the Griseous Orb, Giratina's special item.
