Travel enthusiasts, history buffs or photography fanatics- whoever you are, this place offers something for everyone. If you’ve already tried out and loved the Karla and Bhaja Buddhist caves in Lonavala, your next stop should be the Bedse Caves, located at Bedse village in Kamshet which is about one and a half hours away from Pune.
Did You Know These Buddhist Caves Are Known For Its Aerial View?
What Makes It Awesome?
Bedse Caves are a group of Buddhist rock-cut caves and an architectural marvel that can be traced back to first century BC. The stairs leading to Bedse caves are well laid out and can be climbed to get a bird’s eye view of the surrounding landscape.
After witnessing a breath-taking aerial view, we assure that you would not want to head back. Do not miss out on beautiful sculptures depicting animals and dancing postures. Did you know that the interiors include two main caves -chaitya and vihara along with a small stupa that viewers initially experience?
For those who are put off by crowded places, you will fall in love as you can peacefully explore the site with very few people around. The next time, you are here, we assure you that you will be mesmerized by the spectacular aerial view. Don't forget to carry your cameras and go-pros to shoot the lush surroundings.
What Could Be Better?
The final stretch of the road towards the caves is in a bad condition. With a lack of sufficient sign boards, you can face difficulty navigating your way, especially if you are a visiting for the first time.
For those of you who love waterfalls, visit these caves during monsoons. You'd spot a small waterfall that erupts on the steps leading to the caves.
