Bhaja and Karla Caves: A Journey Through Time and Architecture

Explore the historical marvels of Bhaja Caves and Karla Caves in Maharashtra, India. Dating back to the 2nd century BCE, these rock-cut wonders showcase exquisite Indian architecture. Crafted from basalt rock, the caves house prayer halls, viharas, and chaityas. A testament to Buddhist heritage, they once served as meditation retreats for monks. The intricate Chaitya in Cave 12 mimics wooden patterns but is entirely carved from stone. Stupas, reliefs depicting Buddha’s life, and water cisterns add to their allure. Nearby, Ekvira Devi Temple attracts pilgrims, offering breathtaking views. Easily accessible from Lonavala, this site unveils history, art, and spirituality, inviting enthusiasts and devotees alike.
