Mumbai Kanheri Caves : An Ode to Buddha

The Mumbai Kanheri Caves tour will take you to the Kanheri Caves in Mumbai are more than 2000 years old, and it provides an exceptional opportunity to understand ascetic life in ancient India.


Kanheri Caves in Mumbai date from 1st Century BC to 10th century BC. Located deep inside the Sanjay Gandhi National Park these caves provide an unusual and a rather captivating insight into Buddhism which was founded by Lord Buddha.

During the flourishing times of the Mauryan and the Kushan empires, Kanheri caves were a Buddhist University centre of learning. Most of the caves are the Buddhist Viharas wherein monks would live, study and also meditate.


There are various reasons that make Kanheri Caves a must see attraction on plenty of tourist maps and guides. Its dining halls, dormitories, water cisterns and also a traditional and ancient approach towards architecture gives Kanheri Caves its distinct appeal.


The Kanheri caves are largely undisturbed, tucked away in the green environs of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park.

The park is spread over 9000 hectares, and is home to several species of bird and animal life, including deer, four horned antelope, leopards, macaques, civets, mongoose and langurs.


In the monsoons, and immediately after, the park is a lush green heaven.

This is a personalized Mumbai tour with a private tour guide in Mumbai who would explain you each and every cave in much depth and detail.
