Trip Overview

A private 5-hour tour of the ancient Kanheri caves with an expert tour guide on a private air-conditioned car. Know the history behind the 2500-year-old rock cut architectural beauties of Maharashtra.

Highlights

  • Explore Buddhist sculptures and relief carvings & paintings.
  • Walkthrough the historical timeline of Buddhism.

Detailed overview

A study of the life and teachings of Buddha, the Kanheri caves are located in the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. Used as a monastery for Buddhist monks between the 2nd and 9th centuries. The caves contain numerous paintings and sculptures, inscriptions, and adornments to help monks and their followers follow the way of the master. Although not as impressive as the caves at, Ajanta, they’re well worth a visit, if only for a place to cool off.

 

Itinerary

  • You would start your private tour with a pick–up from your accommodation in Mumbai, head to the Kanheri Caves, located deep within the green forests of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, one of Asia’s major national parks.
  • The caves are a marvelous architectural feat. All 109 of them were chiseled and carved out of a huge basaltic rock outcrop.
  • The smaller caves, known as viharas, served as resting places for the monks. The larger caves, known as chaityas, are lined with various exquisitely carved Buddhist sculptures and were commonly used as places for worship.
  • In the main hall stands the towering figure of the Lord Buddha measuring about 7 meters in height.
  • The interior has a colonnade of 34 majestically carved pillars. The eleven-headed Avalokiteshwara is the most distinctive motif.
  • There are about 100 inscriptions in different scripts - Brahmi, Devnagri, Pallavi, and Sanskrit.
  • At the end of your tour, head back to your accommodation in Mumbai with excellent memories of the day.
