About Bhaja Caves

You have to trail through an adventurous zig-zag road to reach Bhaja Caves. Classified as a national monument, the Buddhist excavations at Bhaja dates back to 1st-century A.D. Located 40 Km from Pune, on the old Mumbai-Pune highway, it is easy to locate and reach this attraction in Lonavala. At the base, the Bhaja village is full of snack shops. However, once you start trekking up, nature starts getting one with you. It is a climb of 20 minutes approximately, most of which is a properly laid out path. The pillars of caves are sloping downwards. Bhaja is a total of 16 caves with fine sculpture. Its architecture engrosses you completely. Visit this place in the evening as it turns romantic and surreal.
