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 have been shaped between the sixth and tenth centuries CE, and are named after the five brothers from the Hindu epic Mahabharata. These ancient rock shelters feature some rough carvings and pillars, as well as some statues of Buddha and Boddhisattva. A stairway guarded by railings descends into a charming garden featuring elaborate topiary. The area has an ancient but still highly functional water-management system with a number of water tanks.
