Pandavleni Caves are a group of twenty four, 1200 years old Hinayana Buddhist caves located about 8kms south of Nashik. Nashik is one of the world’s holiest Hindu cities. The Kumbh Mela is held here once in 12 years along with Ujjain, Allahabad and Haridwar. Leni in Marathi (the local language) means caves. Although these caves are located near one... More

These caves are on the hill, climb is easy. Very well carved out, each clearly showing a different function for which it was built. The area is clean and well maintained. The view from here is simply fantastic. You get to see the whole of Nashik city and the surrounding hills.

Nice place. Start early in the morning to enjoy the uphill task ;) The view from the hill of the Nashik town is amazing. If you are a history beef you will love the place. If you are a nature enthusiast you will still love the place. Or if you want good profile pics for facebook you will love it... More

Although the attraction name suggests links to Pandavas, it happens to bear no connection to them. It happened to be a Buddhist monastery. Its a steep climb. Make sure you carry a water bottle with yourself or else you shall have to manage the same from a little tap at the top..Attraction fee was hardly Rs. 5/- per person. Good... More

Outside main city , this is nice place to climb. One can feel that there is little pollution once you come on outskirts and climb the hill....in rainy season becomes green & great place to be there.

Climbing up may be little challenging, but wont be hot cause the stairs are surrounded by trees, will take 20-30mins to climb up, worth the view of Nashik city. The Caves are quite beautiful, but unfortunately leave you disappointed after the arduous climb, for there are hardly any information signs to make the place interesting. About 24 caves are present,... More

a must visit for those who like architecture and sculptures. The acoustics in the hall and the fine art work with just basic tools is just achieved with perfection.
