It lies on the left side of the Highway from Lonavala,and this place is under the care of ASI, India. It is one of the caves that is built in the times of Samrat Asoka The Great. With many tell tale signs of his era and architecture. Only one cave is open to the public, for viewing. The other chambers do not contain any thing except they tell that many monks lived there for their spiritual reasons, the rooms surround the main hall for congregation and other activities. A must see if you are interested in looking for your roots.

karla caves is a much better site in lonavla..though it is bit far(around 26 kms from Pavna lake & 14 kms from lonavla city) along with a hike but its worth..

if u r coming from lonavla city head straight to pavna lake & then lohgarh fort..

There is a pretty long hike to the caves but the stairs are well maintained and the view is definitely worth it.

Located high up on a hill and approachable only on foot via step uneven steps. However the carvings are marvelous. It is a wonder how such a feat was achieved so many years ago, all carved o of the mountainside! Definitely worth the sweat!
