Situated within the premises of Sanjay Gandhi National park, this place is nice if you are intrested in history. The sad part being that there are no guides or much information once you reach the place. But the view from the top is amazing and a green oasis in the concrete jungle of mumbai

Went in September , was a bit rainy but well worth the walk around 50 caves and up to the top of the hill for fantastic views of the city. Then went to Ghandi's temple for some peace before returning to the bustle of the city

Kanheri caves attract people for its historical importance and solitude nature. These caves located deep inside Sanjay Gandhi National Park served the purpose of Buddhist centers of education, where the religious men used to deliver lectures on the religious texts and basic moral values. Bus transport is available every hour.

The ferry ride over was pretty interesting. I've taken foot ferries before and it was no different until you dock and realize you have to step through several boats to get off. They are lined up and you just cross through each boat. I was praying none of the kids fell through! They do have life jackets on the ferry... More

The Kanheri Caves date back to the 1st century BC and are nestled within the Sanjay Gandhi National Park just on the outskirts of Mumbai. The park is a very vast area and it would be most sensible to go to the caves by hired car or some other forms of motorized transport. The caves are made up of 109... More
