Karla Caves Reviews & Ratings

  • For first time visitor these caves looks good. The architecture inside the caves is very good. There is also a temple at the caves. It takes around 20 to 30 min to reach to caves from base point. View from the caves is also beautiful. Entry ticket for the caves costs 25rs per person.

  • Need to climb about 300 steps may take 30min to 1 hour depending on your stamina. Most of the way shaded & between the shops. The place was amazing as we saw small water fall from the hillock. Nice carvings & cool place.

  • It is nice historical place. A must visit once in life. This cave is not just a cave but like a big bungalow created in ancient time. It has been made by carving the big stony mountain. You should be careful with timings. Some people reach a bit late and they miss the opportunity to see it completely. Also need to be careful while climbing the stairs because they slippery at many places.

  • Awesome place to visit. Specially those people who love historical places. The Architecture of this cave is mind blowing.. just you can notice one point is the way natural light entered in to the cave.. just superb planning. Must visit for adventure lovers, history lovers and for archeology students there is lot to learn... good luck and must visit place for sure.

  • Nice place with good views. The cave is huge and has a temple next to it. The temple seems to be famous as there were lot of people visiting it. You have to climb stairs to reach this cave. And also there is no entry inside the cave. One can only see it from outside.
