Explore Karla and Bhaja caves, a group of rock-cut caves dating back from the 2nd century B.C. to the 5th century A.D. with transport from Mumbai.

Highlights

  • Explore Buddhist sculptures and relief carvings, paintings and inscriptions
  • Discover Karla Caves by foot
  • Uncover Indian rock–cut architecture

Description

After pick–up from your hotel in Mumbi, travel roughly 3 hours in an air-conditioned private vehicle to reach Karla around 10:00am. Take a walk through the impressive site, ascending 200 steep steps to reach the caves, excavated thousands of years ago from a hillside in the Western Ghats in Maharashtra. The rock–cut shrines were developed for Buddhist monks to use during the monsoons. They feature chaityas (prayer halls) with intricate carvings, the largest of the halls measures 148 feet and was created in the 1st century B.C. After exploring the caves, take a break to purchase lunch at a restaurant of your choice. Then head to the Bhaja caves, another religious site near the Karla Caves. At the end of a full day, drive back to your Mumbai hotel where your tour ends with hotel drop off.
