The caves are set high on a granite outcrop in a lovely national park where we also saw monkeys and spotted deer. We visited with a knowledgable guide, which we highly recommend. He provided excellent historic background and pointed out special treasures such as the painting on the ceiling of one of the caves which we would otherwise have missed.... More

But for a serious tourist Kanheri caves offers some amazing Buddhist caves which encompasses with in a burial ground of monks, a reading room or library, some wonderful peace of art , stupa, carving, inscriptions and some...

Beautiful place to visit - there are 109 caves in total- built by monks - caves 1-4 are reasonably easy to get to - caves 5-109 require a bit of a endurance- also take into consideration that it is very hot- little shade and monkeys everywhere!!

After several days in Mumbai, I was interested in a change of pace and went on a tour to Kanheri caves --the entrance of which is in north Mumbai. Since it was a weekday, there were few people at the caves which made it nice to tour. There are a number of caves to explore and the setting is quite... More

one of the most beautiful monument of over two thousand years old caves carved in the mountain rock by legendary Buddhist monks. This gives their great skill, knowledge and living style in the hill for preaching great religion. one must see their systematic living style with water tanks in each carved room.
