These caves have structures dating back to about 2nd BC. The most interesting feature are the curved beams made out of wood. A not to be missed attraction.

After finishing lohagad fort it's just 4kms away from the fort. It's good to see the caves as these were the meditation place for all stages in olden days.

The approach road towards cave is horrible and traffic was worst it took us 2 hours to reach upto caves and when we reached the caves got closed due to timing over. To proper timing display. Parking area horrible. Not worth it

Stunning scenery, beautiful place. Another group of ancient buddhist caves, 8-10 km from Karla caves. The architectural design is quite similar to Karla caves. The major difference is outside stupas. There are 14 stupas considered sign of buddhist monks who died at bhaja. The beauty...More
