Highlights
What makes this tour special

The Kanheri caves are spread over a wide area. Each cave served as the room of a single monk which had a stone podium that was probably used as a bed. There is also a huge hall which houses the 'Dagoba' , a Buddhist Image. The Hall was used as a place for mass religious meetings or for group worship.

The Kanheri Caves show the predominance of Buddhism in this part of western India during the ancient times. Apart from enlightening us on the historical and spiritual nature of Buddhism, the Kanheri Caves are also a delight for those who want to be close to nature.

TheyThey were chiseled out of a massive basaltic rock outcropping. Nearly 51 legible inscriptions and 26 epigraphs are found at Kanheri, which include the inscriptions in Brahmi, Devanagari and 3 Pahlavi epigraphs found in Cave 90.
