Location is very attarctive but need more walk in hill area. You can feel the living style of buddhist people in old days. Peaceful and calm. Take care of drinking water and food because of long walk from main gate.

Kanheri Caves are situated withing the Sanjay Gandhi National Park accessible from Borivali. It pays to rent a bicycle at the entrance of the park and ride within on a leisurely sunday afternoon. Kanheri Caves are exquisite and beautiful to see. Would recommend all Mumbaikars to give it a visit.

We hired a car to bring us to this place from our hotel in Khar West. It took about one hour to get there. At the gate the car was not allowed in but after the driver showed that it's a tourist booking it was ok but we had to pay separately for the car. The national park area we... More

My Mum and I traveled to India and visited kanheri caves in February 2017. It was a pleasant day out and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. The caves were really interesting when we got there - be prepared for a long walk to get there. We were dying of thirst, but the little shop at the top sells ice... More

Wow. Seeing what was carved out of rock 100s of years ago was amazing. And being able to just touch and experience the place. Still trying to comprehend how it was done and the effort required. Also cool that it's within a national park with monkeys and dears etc

The kanheri caves needs serious attention to maintain it in a decorable state. This is just caving in with no proper maintenance

Kanheri caves is not a picnic spot but an architectural and historical tourist experience. In order to appreciate the relevance of the depictions, architecture,carvings it is important to visit kanheri caves with a well informed knowledgeable guide...Someone who understands Buddhism....Otherwise one would miss the subtleties such as the 11 headed avalokitesvara, Tara, tantric aspect of Buddhism etc.... Unfortunately a lot... More
