As expected the caves were spread over a huge area and it wasn’t possible for us cover all of them in one day. These caves date back from 01 century BCE to 10 century CE. We explored a most of the caves located on the northern side and were amazed by the work effort that must have gone into creating... More

Kanheri Caves is situated in Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Borivali. It's a sight to see and doesn't feel a part of Mumbai at all. Though it's more of a day's visit and takes up quite the energy, it's worth all of the time and energy one puts in.

Nice place when you are longer in Mumbai and want to escape the noise of the city. It was surprisingly green and rural. After paying the mini entrance fee into the national park, take the bus to the caves as the street is crowded and 8 km long. Additional entrance fee for the caves (in total I spent less than...

There are buses available every hour. I reached at national park gate and bus left me at the steps to kanheri caves. There are number... More

Kanheri Caves surely have the perfect essence of being a wonderful combo of historical caves, in the midst of the 2000+ acres of the Borivili National Park. It has a special place in my heart, as there are ample places and rocks to learn rock-climbing, at various stages of learning the sport. From training a 10 year old to training... More

These caves must have been some monastery in the past. We enjoyed the structural planning of the caves and the rooms. Well planned contruction with rooms, water storage, meditation, etc. Buddhist monks must have had room divisions according to the rankings of the monks. These structures need to be conserved as it is for the future generation to learn. Neatness... More

If you enjoy nature and a brush up with history this is place you should not miss. This is a place not visited by many. Very well maintained and very clean. It has few Budh statues and place where monks used to live and pray. Kids will love the small walk. You must go there early morning so that you... More
