This is probably one of the most underrated and unpublicized places in Mumbai western suburbs. It is difficult to believe that, just about 20 minutes away from Borivali station and few kilometres away from the hustling noisy Western Express Highway, such calm and tranquil place can exist. After entering from the main gate of Sanjay Gandhi National park and paying... More

it is a good place to discover the buddhist heritage of old time dynasty. The place is not big compared to Ajanta and ellora. But it is relatively calm and peaceful. There has some buddha stone statutes and stupa to see. Not much but give you a glimpse of that era buddhism , style and believe.

This place has 57 caves and you have to visit it from National Park at Borivali. The best cave that we found was at the entrance where a two big statues of standing Buddha are facing one another. Highly recommended.

It is surprising how many people have not heard about, or bothered to visit these caved. Kanheri caves are inside the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, which itself is bang in the middle of crowded, noisy and sprawling suburbs of greater Mumbai. You can drive all the way to the caves, take a shuttle bus from the national park entrance, or... More

I must confess I hadn't visited this although I have been born and brought up in Mumbai. It was when one of our foreign counterparts came to India and suggested interest in Kanheri Caves did I visit along with them. Although it was terribly hot since we went there after 10am, the caves quite impressed us. There is a lot... More
