Early 2nd century caves, primarily Vihara's for buddhist monks. Travelled with my 10 year old - with a view to show him a bit more of the amazing indian inclusive culture & heritage. In the process, gained so much insights. The caves were called Pundru which in Pali language means "yellow ochre color". This is because the caves were the... More

The place does have a historical value but has not been maintained at all by the local authorities. Poor landscaping, lack of guidance due to missing signage, improper walkways are not something one would like. Locals often visit it but it is not worth for an international or long distance traveler.

If you have been ajanta and ellora caves then pandevleni caves might not be so interesting for you. But it's absolutely important to jump the iron fence in the far right end of the caves and sit on the edge of the hills to get the most beautiful view of the city. That was my spot in the city. Beautiful.

Went there on this Holi. The only feeling after visitingthe caves was Wow! It was built during some hundered of AD. Amazing architecture and craftsmenship. To carve 24 caves out of plain mountain rocks and in that era is a work looks like done by some superhumans. The experience was for lifetime

We didn't have much expectation when we went to Pandavaleni caves but we were pleasantly surprised once there. The climb of around 100 odd steps takes you to the most breathtaking views of the Nasik city and the state highway. The 24 caves are well demarcated and can be quite a treat for photographers and sketch artists. Once you are... More

We need to walk 2 kms on a well paved clean road. The caves are maintained by ASI. Since it involves climbing. old and aged may avoid this place. Though the caves are attractive and must visit place, needs some effort. The road from parking to the entrance gate is horrible. walk carefully. Nice and beautiful view of Nasik city.... More

The Pandav leni under the ASI are very well maintained and has around 24 caves. It offers breathtaking views of the Mumbai-Nashik Highway and the Nashik City. None of the caves have lights so in some caves it becomes difficult to see the Buddha Idols without using a flash light or a torch. To reach the caves one has to... More
