I think this place ranks better than any other place in nashik. It is nested above a hill with nice panaromic view of the city and some of the cave structure themselves are quite nice and well preserved, the complex itself is very big.

We were staying in nashik and decided to visit the caves. It took about 2 hours. Perfect fast day outing for the family or a couple. Caves were awesome but not as elaborate as ajunta or ellora.

People interested in exploring can visit this place. Good 2-3 hours can be spent trolling through various caves. The temple is carved out of the mountain is beautiful.

Very old caves built/carved by Pandavas during their halt at Nashik during Mahabharata period. Up on the hill on Mumbai-Agra national highway no. 3, on the outskirts of Nashik city
