About Khambhalida Buddhist Caves

The Khambhalida Buddhist Caves in Rajkot are ancient Buddhist Caves that lie very close to the city precincts. For those who find immense interest and love in archaeology, this place is an almost heaven as it gives one plenty of opportunity to discover the history and culture of ancient times. The popularity of this destination is evident from the crowd of visitors who come here at all times of the year. On the main entrance to the caves, you will find the carvings of two big sculptures of Lord Buddha. This landmark in Rajkot dates back to a long time, back to the fourth century. However, the one thing that totally disappoints visitors by coming to this attraction in Rajkot is the poor maintenance and the bad state of the sculptures.

Historical Context: It is said that these caves were carved in the limestone rocks by Saint of Dinyan branch of Buddha tradition. Shri P. P. Pandya, a prominent archeologist, discovered the Buddhist Cave in 1958.
Pro Tip: Locating the Caves can be a challenge so it is advised that you equip yourself with a map before starting the journey
