Located very near to the Karla caves, these caves are comparatively lesser known and thus relatively less commercialized. More than 2000 years old, these caves are our ancient heritage.

This place is good to visit once in rainy season. At the start of this place we have a water fall which is very attractive. Best to visit this place in rainy season only.
