Excavation site.. One can find caves and carvings. this place attracts little visitors. You can access there by Bus or taxi. I am not sure of the Bus number. Entrance is free and not a bad place to visit too.
Very peaceful place must visit here. I stay nearby this place and very lucky to have this historical place nearby me. It's a very beautiful and amazing place.
Loved the simplicity of these caves. Also, it is situated in the most unexpected place - right in the middle of the city. A little maintenance will make this place much more beautiful.
You will definitely get surprised to see this serene area located in middle of busy metro city. Belongs to great historian past, this structure is beautiful to visit once if you are interested in such kind of places. No entry fee , no food stalls inside , fairly clean surrounding but needed more to take care of this structure. Though located in average n bit slum area; Evening sight seeing one may find interesting here especially view from top. It can be good place for foreign tourist too as it's location & complete sight seeing may not take longer than 1 hour or so PROVIDED increased in security and cleanliness . Food & other beverages can be found along Link road or around mahakali road junction area.
One of the oldest cave. Govt trying to maintain it. Good place to see one rock cut with different statue ard carved in rock.
