The statues are perfect and trip inside was very educational as they portray some of the historical peronalities. Scenes of village life and wedding procession are very realistic. Definitely will recommend this place if you visit Kohlapur, India.

I visited this place during one of my visit to Mumbai. I had visited one of my cousin in Kandhivalli and it was he who suggested me to go for a visit to Kanheri caves. I was amazed and felt a respect for maintaining a forest in the middle of such a crowded city. The Budha caves are well maintained... More

Most tourists in Mumbai go to the more famous Elephanta Caves on Elephanta Island, which I didn't actually make it to so I can't compare. All I know is Kanheri caves are fantastic and weren't crowded at all. I was visiting my husband who was working nearby on a Bollywood project and read about Kanheri caves. When I asked the... More
