Carved between the second century BC to the fifth century AD, these caves are also home to some stunning Chaityas {halls} and Viharas {monasteries} that are a reflection of the rich history and architecture of our country. Additionally, there is also a temple made of pillars from the Buddhist period that is located at the entrance of the cave.

According to ancient sources, the caves are of great importance to the Mahasamghika sect of Buddhism, before they even become relevant to Hinduism.

Owing to its historical significance, the Archaeological Survey of India has now declared these caves to be a protected monument.
