It is a wrong name given to the cave. It does not belong to the pandav era. The guide himself told us. It has been However made popular with this name. Irrespective of the same the caves are good with a nice scenic view.

The place is one of the sight seeing attractions on the tour. Few closed cave like areas are there but not much could be made out to prove relations to Pandavas.

Rooms built by the Pandavas during their exile. Pandavas stayed here for a short while and this is now a heritage spot. Nicely preserved with nice flowering gardens near it is a must see.

Nothing in these caves suggest that these were pandava caves! Except the view of the city from the top, there's nothing special about this place!

Its a beautiful place with lovely gardens. There are five caves which are given a mythological twist with some saying the Pandavas stayed there during exile. The veracity of this claim is not verified historically. But a very enjoyable place to visit.

Beautiful natural caves. Surroundings also have been very well maintained. Don't forget to enjoy the yummy boiled berries called Labdho , and barf ka gola right outside the premises.

Nice place to see. Small garden at entry & old caves at bit higher level. You can have small ride on scooter as well just outside.

The important caves have been closed due to vandalism. Those that are open are not worth a second look. There is nothing that could link these caves to the Mahabharata era and the Pandav caves name is a misnomer. The wind is quite strong at...More

Caves are barricaded and locked. You can view them only from outside and giving in is not allowed. There is a park at the base which looks good from top view. Make sure you take you guide with you for more explanation/stories as nothing is...More
