This place is best visited with a knowledgeable local guide who can bring to life all the carvings and paintings in the caves.

Kanheri caves is a beautiful place. the caves are so beautiful and one may not discover that such type of caves exist. I took my son, who was visiting India after 10 years and he thoroughly enjoyed it.

Whilst I had no patience to wait for the monsoon season, i packed water and suncream and headed to see this incredible urban park, home to big cats and a wide variety of fauna and flora. Needless to say, it's dry and not much can be seen, and very very hot, hence spent most of time chilling at the caves,... More

It was very good earlier.... now they dont allow you to go deeper inside and they threaten you. So the appeal wears off within a few minutes. Or else would have recommended

Kanheri caves are located in Sanjay Gandhi National Park and these caves are pretty beautiful. They contain Buddhist sculptures and relief carvings, paintings and inscriptions, dating from the 1st century BCE to the 10th century CE.

The caves are epitome of the culture and art of the folks who once lived here. Located in the midst of the national park, it is easily accessible through Sanjay Ghandi National park either via walking or a form of transport! The caves are the main attraction and the carvings although not too well maintained are quite intricate. You can... More

These caves are very nice and atmosphere here is very beautiful as these caves are located inside National park. Best option for one day weekend plan. National park and these caves can cover in one day with carrying good memories with you.

The natural beauty is spell bounding at this place. The caves are all very old and have loads of history attached to it. Its 10 mins walking from sanjaygandhi national park and is accessible by buses and cars. The scenic beauty is really amazing at this place.
