About this listing

Pandav leni Caves

The caves, known as Pandav Caves also known as Trirashmi Buddhist Caves were carved out from the 1st century BCE until the 3rd century CE, with later additions of sculptures. They were paid for by local Buddhist royalty, merchants and local people for the Buddhist monks. The name is derived from the word “Tiranhu” which is inscribed in the Caves. It means “rays of sunlight” which is quite obviously referring to the rays of sunlight emerging from behind the Caves as seen from the village. The caves lodge idols of Buddha and Bodhisattva. Some caves are intricately connected by stone-cut ladders that join them to the other caves. Steps lead to the caves from the bottom of the hill. The peak of the Trirashmi Caves is also accessible by trekking of about 20 mins but the path is well built with steps.

These caves are one of the oldest caves of Maharashtra. Some of the caves are large and contain numerous chambers – these rock-cut caves served as a viharas or monasteries for the disciples to meet and hear sermons. The site has an excellent ancient water management system and skillfully chiseled out of solid rock are several attractive water tanks.
