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 center 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.
