Kanheri Caves is a great place to visit with your family on weekends, the site is nicely maintained by the ASI, the entry fees to the National Park and the caves is nominal and the compound is nice and clean, there is a small cafeteria which serves snacks and soft drinks, the only issues are the monkey menace and the...

Had a nice day out in the National Park. Went at the morning and it wasn't crowded at all. The caves are 7km from the entrance of the park, it would be a huge walk. We took the small "bus" for Rs40 which was easier. There is no price difference by the entry(Rs40) and the transport(Rs40), only to the caves... More

Kanheri caves are ancient Buddhist cave temples located in a dense forest deep inside the National park in the heart of Mumbai's western suburbs. The road is well maintained and easily motor-able. The caves are carved from the rock face of the hill and there are hundreds of caves. The caves are spartan as they were mainly Buddhist 'viharas' meaning... More

Worth seeing. Over 100 caves that have been carved with impressive statues over a wide area of the national park. Going back over 2000 years. The drive out and up the hill is a very pleasant way to get out of the hustle of Mumbai. Once on the top of the hill the view is amazing. To think you are... More

This is a brilliant place in Mumbai. For people who don't have time to go out from Mumbai but are wildlife lovers. Five of us recently went to this place at Borivali, for a friends birthday to spend the entire day. The caves are just so amazing. There are 109 caves here. Its a great place to click pictures, amazing... More

This complex of caves was set in a national park area within greater Mumbai. The best caves had large statutes of the Buddha and other figures carved in them. It was a bit of a drive out of town. We had a guide which was good because she could tell us about the caves. It was very hot when we... More
