The climb to this place is slightly steep. However the effort is worth it when you reach this place. The view from the top is great, so are the caves and the carvings.

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.

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.

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
