Karla Caves

Karla Caves is situated 11 km from Lonavla in a place called Karli. A Buddhist monastery in the 2nd century BC, the cave has been extensively damaged and is now under a restoration program with the Indian Archeological Society. The original living place of the monks is now occupied by a goddess Ekaveera temple.

    Oh wow, so stunning. I also think the couple needed to be there to give the perspective of the immensity of the structure. Amazing that this is carved out of a cave wall. Beautiful. Thank you.
