Kanheri Caves, Mumbai

Recently the Ministry of Tourism has inaugurated public facilities at Kanheri Caves.

The Kanheri caves were built by Buddhist monks between the 2nd and 9th centuries AD. It is a group of rock-cut monuments. It is located within the forests of Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Borivali, Mumbai.

Kanheri is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Krishnagiri’. It literally means ‘Black Mountain’.

In these, artistic evidence of the three branches of Buddhism, Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana is available. They developed under the patronage of the Satavahana, Trikutak, Vakataka and Shilahara dynasties.

The earliest reference to Kanheri is by Fahien.
