Event Information

Start your private tour with a pick–up from your accommodation in Mumbai, head to the Kanheri Caves, located deep within the green forests of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, one of Asia’s major national parks. The caves are a marvelous architectural feat. All 109 of them were chiseled and carved out of a huge basaltic rock outcrop. The smaller caves, known as _viharas_, served as resting places for the monks. The larger caves, known as _chaityas_, are lined with various exquisitely carved Buddhist sculptures and were commonly used as places for worship. In the main hall stands the towering figure of the Lord Buddha measuring about 7 meters in height. The interior has a colonnade of 34 majestically carved pillars. The eleven-headed Avalokiteshwara is the most distinctive motif. There are about 100 inscriptions in different scripts - Brahmi, Devnagri, Pallavi and Sanskrit. At the end of your tour, head back to your accommodation in Mumbai with excellent memories of the day.
