If you are a nature lover then do not miss visiting this amazing park and the caves located inside. My friends were eager to spend some quality time close to nature. We planned it one evening and guess what? It started raining and the whole visit become worth the try. You can relax, stroll and eat at the nearby café.

In the busy city of India's financial capital lies this patch of green named after Sanjay Gandhi. A 10-minute walk from Borivali station on the Western Railway line, one can reach the main gate of Sanjay Gandhi National Park. One can hire a car, or even a cycle (like me!) to reach Kanheri caves around 7km from the gate!

Now is the time to go there , rains and green all around . Beautiful caves . Long walk is refreshing .the nooks and corners hide delights of nature .. Spread of nature in the middle of the city is a wonder itself .. Buddhist caves are beautifully carved .. If one hasn't seen it one must go

While Christianity was kicking off its humble beginnings in Palestine, the Buddhists were living in the hills north of Mumbai in a series of 104 caves.. You can reach them using the train to the last stop from Churchgate and then a rickshaw to the National Park. There is a choice of transport - I shared a minibus and paid... More

If you are only few days in Mumbai, then don't waste your time to visit this caves. It is not comparable with the caves at Elephanta Island or even with Ellora or Ajanta. As everywhere, such place could be much more clean.
