Description

Start your day with a complementary morning pickup from your chosen location, then relax in your private air-conditioned vehicle on the 1-hour drive to Sanjay Gandhi National Park, where the Kanheri Caves are located. The 109 basalt rock caves were carved between the 1st century BC and 9th century AD, and the site served for more than 1,500 years as a center for Buddhist monks. Climb a flight of rock steps to arrive at the caves, which contain elaborately carved sculptures, pillars, and stupas, along with paintings of the Buddha and the Vihara (prayer hall). The cave complex was home to a renowned Buddhist university, with rock-cut rooms that were used for study, meditation, and living quarters. Spend about two hours exploring the caves with your guide, then return to Mumbai where your tour ends with hotel drop-off.
