Pandav Caves - Review
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!

Pandav Caves, Pachmarhi Reviews
It is believed that pandavas built these caves during their vanvas. The caves are carved from the small hill at different level. Caves are great and the place developed by local authority is extra ordinary. Awesome garden is well maintained and nicely designed at the base of hill of at the entrance of the caves. It has small shelters to take rest. Many different and unknown and unseen plants are grown here.
पांडव गुफाओं का इतिहास बहुत पुराना है। कहते हैं कि पांडवो ने अपने अज्ञातवास का समय यहां व्यतीत किया था ।देखने पर इस बात पर यकीन भी होता है । पत्थरों को तराश कर पांच गुफाएं बनाई गई हैं सबसे ऊपर द्रोपदी की रसोई भी है।पहाड़ी के ऊपर तक जाने के लिए सीढ़ियां भी है।ऊपर से बहुत सुंदर दृश्य दिखाई देता है। अब तो यहां सुंदर बगीचा भी बना दिया है । यह स्थान पचमढ़ी शहर के पास ही है इसलिए पर्यटकों की भीड़ लगी होती है इसे देखे बिना पचमढ़ी प्रवास अधूरा है।
The view from the top of the caves is too good. People, especially from metro cities who don't get to see the scenery, enjoy such views.
It is 3km far from bus station. Its very beautiful and natural place. After crossing garden you can see caves. Really nice place to visit in panchmarhi
It's a dissapointment to see the caves locked. However the view from the top is fantastic. The garden is well maintained and adds to the scenic beauty of the place. I climed when it was raining, the stairs do not slip and the railings make it safe for the middle aged to climb.
