About Pandav Caves, Pachmarhi

The Pandav Caves are where the Pandavas- Yudhishthira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva, were believed to stay during their exile with Draupadi. According to local legends, the Pandavas stayed here for around 13 years in hiding to stay away form their enemies. The 5 caves were made for 5 brothers and even though they are concluded to be formed during different time periods, their strong structure with simple embellishments and carvings pull tourists from all over the world.

The caves also have a Buddhist temple belonging to ‘Kubera’ the lord of wealth. Today, even though much of the medieval paintings kept here are lost, the place’s evidence to one of the most iconic mythologies in India, is hard to ignore!
