The caves have rock-cut architecture and are comprised of Chaitya; they're also home to several viharas and monasteries, which your guide will tell you about.

After the first portion of your tour, you will break for lunch at your chosen restaurant (your own expense). At1:30pm, continue tothe Bhaja caves, another religious site not too far from the Karla Caves. Cave number 12 functions as a Chaitya hall and cave number 1 exists as the dwelling home of its master architect. The remaining caves contain inscriptions that detail information about the donors. Cover the territory by foot to get an up-close look.

When your cave exploration is complete, you'll be driven back to your Mumbai hotel for a 6:30pm arrival.
