About Khambhalida Caves
Khambhalida Caves are a footprint of Buddhism in Gujrat and date back to 5 BC. The caves are located in Gondal and are at a distance of eight kms from the main Railway station. The spot has three caves; the middle one has a chaitya, which is a ruined stupa. The access to the chaitya is covered by two edifices of the Bodhisatvas-Padmapani on the right and Vajrapani on the left. The caves have been scooped out of the Limestone rocks.
