PANDAV CAVES

The Pandava Caves, as the name would suggest are associated with the Pandava brothers, who during the time of their exile, are said to have spent a substantial time here. Historically, it is believed that the caves were made chiselled out of the hill by the Buddhist Monks, for a monastery, sometime between the 6th to 10th century AD. The caves have been chiselled crudely, however, the enormity of the structure is magnificent. The cave structure has rooms, presumably for various functions, including teaching, meditation etc, with one of the chambers offering a resonating and reverberating sound, presumably for chanting. It is believed that the caves were full of rock paintings, however, none remain visible to the naked eye anymore.
