The ferry ride there is a bit of a palava, huge crowds and no real management but you get by. but it is definitely worth it. beautiful caves with a lot of history. takes your breath away. A must if you are in Mumbai. lots of snack vendors too. try the grilled corn on the cob with lime and chilli... More

We saw many temple caves in india and not our favorite but would still go back. The bus that we took was not far from down town and was not disappointed. Bathrooms like most of india were not great(westerners bring paper).

Lovely place to visit the past One wonders how they managed to carve out these 108 caves centuries ago with proper temples and dormitories They also have a well dug out for water Set inside Mumbai you cannot think of such a calm and serene place amongst the noise Must visit

It is in Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivali east area, a wooded place full of about 100 leopards & hence closed. People go on their own risk in own cars. It is risky visiting there.

The caves are very old. You need a guide to explain the carvings and its historical and aesthetic details. Go on weekdays when not crowded.It requires a lot of climbing and so not so comfortable for the elderly and kids too.

Kanheri Caves in Boravili National park are a gem hidden in the urban jungle. This place is best to visit in monsoons as the surroundings come to life and so do the waterfalls. Your vehicle can go right up to the foothills for the caves which is way inside after you have crossed the national park entrance. The caves seem... More

It is an amazing experience just to visit Asia, but when you take the time to go to some of the profound ancient sites that really have you standing there and staring at them in awe, it's truly a special feeling. This is a place that is absolutely worth seeing for sure. You'll want to have either a local guide,... More

Great place to visit. Around 7km from entrance of the park. So you can take a taxi, hire a bike or walk.....but it is a long walk. Lots of monkeys around happy to relieve you of your food....109 caves in all some not so well preserved but some spectacular like the grand hall....it's a spiritual place for Buddhists so there...
