The caves were made many years ago and are a national treasure. After walking many steps to get there it is refreshing to just stand and look at the carvings. The ferry ride to get there was maybe the best part.

Don't miss these wonderful 1300 year old rock hewn cave temples dedicated to Shiva. Amazing detailed and gorgeous carvings, even if partly destroyed. A wonderful experience and worth the one hour boat trip and the many steps past the inevitable gauntlet of souvenir stalls. Try...More

我由Boricali Train Station 一直步行到National Park. 公園內有接駁巴士直達至Kanheri Caves, 大約50 INR. 但我最後選擇由公園步行到Kanheri Caves, 大約花了兩小時. 途中有小販, 可惜沒有水賣. 直到到達Kanheri Caves才有士多. Kanheri Caves 雖然有過百個洞穴, 但只有十個洞穴內有古蹟. 而且外國人的入場費大約200 INR. 所以不要抱過大期望. 但都是一個好去處.
