Group of caves crafted on the bank of Kodjai river. This place is surrounded by dense jungle. One can reach to this ancient architecture thru Dapoli - Dabhol road via Male village. Do not take Nante village road which is very worst for vehicle.

The caves are of Buddhist period and is not that popular. Though a very small place which is around 30 KMS from Dapoli which makes it lesser known to tourists, the place is a must visit for history lovers.
