Chambharlena is one among such sacred spot is Teerthraj Gajpantha, which is a holy places of the Jains and Chambharlena caves are a portion of this famous place. Placed atop of the hill at an elevation of 400 feet, commands a panoramic sight of the valley below. These cave offers a tranquil ambience suitable for rumination. Gajapantha Teerth where the caves are a part consists of other important structures like a small hut, a temple, among other things. The popular belief is that Chamaraj the King of Mysore built Chambharlena in 600 BC. Hence the caves obtained the name “Chamer Caves” or “Chambhar Caves” in the local lingo.

In the mahasrul village ryt outside nashik on dindori road are the beautiful cave temples for jains called as gajpantha teerth. The caves are at the top of the hill..there is a steep climb above the hill of almost 450 steps..last few are very cumbersome. After reaching the top there are 5 cave temples which belong to various jain lords. The cool breeze up above is extremely soothing and one tends to frgt the strain. The marvellous view of nashik city is available from the hill top..must visit place.
