3.2/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
Enter a meditation cave and feel its natural ventilation at Pandav Caves, a complex of five rock-cut Buddhist caves in the Satpura range. Hewn by Buddhist monks, these sandstone caves are believed to be shaped between the 6th and 10th century and they are named after five brothers of Hindu epic Mahabharata. These ancient rock shelters feature some rough carvings and pillars and some statues of Buddha and Boddhisattva. A stairway guarded by rail guards descends into a charming garden with an elaborate topiary. The area has an excellent ancient water management system with a number of wate tanks.
