Karla Caves - Review
One of the oldest reminisces of the Buddhist Empire; Karla caves enthral the visitors with its majestic appeal. You have to hike up to the caves and though it might seem tiresome, the reward is astonishing.
The entrance is shaped like a horseshoe and paves way for the huge structure that lies within. The base structure of the main cave Chaitya is shaped like a water jar and the charming facade is made up of wood. It has 37 pillars and presents excellent architecture which memorises the visitors.
The Karla Caves are protected by the Archaeological survey of India.

Karla Caves, Lonavala Reviews
A great place to spend the evening. The view gets even more spectacular when it gets cloudy. The large green garden surrounding the monument can be a great place to feel the breeze and a touch o nature within the city limits. The museum inside the memorial is not that diverse but do pay the calcuta section a visit, you may find many of the old manuscripts on display quite interesting.
Karla Caves is again one of the best tourist spots of Lonavala, specially during the rainy season. It's picturesque view makes it an amazing destination to hang out. You have to climb up the stairs and after around 15 minutes you reach the caves. Below are the pictures of our trip to give you an idea of what the view looks like. The waterfalls and the greenery makes the ambience awesome. Just one suggestion - Leave your vehicles by the main road and walk up the hill to enjoy the beauty. Don't take your vehicles up to the top otherwise you will get stuck in bas traffic for several hours up there.
Great view. Historical place. View gets better as whether gets foggy. Sunset is great to watch. Reaching this place will take some energy out of you because you have to walk on stares to reach the top.
Karla is one of the older and smaller rock-cut Buddhist site. Good place visit. And it is the cool and peaceful place. Their is parking availability as well. After the parking you need to take stairs and climb nearly 20-30 minutes to reach Karla caves. Ticket fees for adult Indian is Rs.25 and for foreigners it is Rs.300
This place is very apt for all type of trekkers and hikers. It will hardly take 30-45 mins to climb the hill. The steps are fine and have side railing for support as well. But the steps will be slippery during rainy days. The view from the top is fabulous.
