Beautiful place to visit - there are 109 caves in total- built by monks - caves 1-4 are reasonably easy to get to - caves 5-109 require a bit of a endurance- also take into consideration that it is very hot- little shade and monkeys everywhere!!

one of the most beautiful monument of over two thousand years old caves carved in the mountain rock by legendary Buddhist monks. This gives their great skill, knowledge and living style in the hill for preaching great religion. one must see their systematic living style with water tanks in each carved room.

Being someone who enjoys visiting historical sites, this proved to be an excellent trip. The 2500 year old caves are quite something to behold.

What an amazing day we all had. We were a group of about 10 including kids and teenagers. We enjoyed every bit of it. The caves are so beautiful inside. The temperature inside always remains so pleasant and can sometimes feel slightly chilly to some people, so do carry some warm jacket. There are guides available outside the caves to... More
