Kanheri Caves Tour

Meeting and assistance upon arrival at Mumbai port (your guide will be waiting for you at the EXIT GATE of port, having a placard and your name written on it). Then you will drive to explore the Kanheri caves.
Kanheri Caves are a group of rock - cut ancient caves located in Borivali in Mumbai. To reach there we will have to pass through the green forests of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. The caves are located deep inside about 6 km from the entrance of national Park.   The caves comprise viharas (monasteries), chaityas (halls) and dwellings and were used by Buddhist monks between the 1st century BC and 10th century AD as part of a monastic university complex.
                                                                                            
Kanheri caves in Mumbai have a great influence of Buddhism and they display the Buddhist angle on the art and culture of India.
