Beautiful cave

The Kanheri Caves is a good place to spend a morning, a lot of history to place along with a nice place to take some good photos.

Please visit this place only if you care about history - otherwise there is nothing for you except the boat ride.

Visited the National Park & Kanheri caves as we stay very near but never had the time to do so. Not a very good idea to visit the caves during midday due to the heat but quite cool once you enter the cave complex. Worth the effort (quite a climb) & a numbing experience to see what people in the... More

Its so amazing to actually find these caves situated in the metropolitan jungle i.e. Bombay/Mumbai. In fact this is located within the Sanjay Gandhi national park. Hence travelling to these caves means that you need to enter through the park. It might be good that you book a vehicle on your way to the park and then use that to... More

Good place to visit if bored from concrete life. The caves are made from rocks you can see 'zarna' water fall and enjoy the sight seeing. Best place for people who love archeology and history.
