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!

Pandav Caves, Pachmarhi Reviews

  • Pandav Caves offers good view of the garden and city. It includes a climb of few steps to reach the top of caves. From here one can have a very nice view of the entire Pachmarhi area. There is a garden at the bottom which is very beautifully. I prefer you to visit here with your family.

  • Serene place. If you are looking for a relaxing time and scenic beauty go here... Although they have closed almost all the caves by grills you can still enjoy the garden and the quiet outside the caves. Just sit and see from there... That is all.

  • Historic. Well crowded place. In the hills there are 5 cave like structures called pandav caves. A bit of Hill climb required. Not tough. Railings are provided. One can see scenic beauty from the top. Also there is a botanical garden just at the foot of hills.

  • Very good place to spend time with...have sporting stuffs for kids too (Bikes are available). The garden is maintained pretty well. Tbe caves are in a hill type structures and are actually used by Buddhist disciples to preach Buddhism in the past. Its a historical place and the view from the top is very beautiful.

  • The cave is situated on a small hill you have to climb stairs to reach the caves. During monsoon these steps become sleepary and you have to be very careful while climbing. A beautful garden at the entrance makes the place more attractive. Few food stall are also available near to the cave. Horse and bike rides are also available for children here.
