Kanheri Caves - Mumbai
  • Dear Friends,

    This is my last article on Mumbai monuments, till I find new ones on my
    next visit :). Kanheri caves are well known Buddhist site at Mumbai. I am
    sure you might have seen some pictures of it already, however there are
    certain salient features which I would like to point out in my article:

    - The largest cave complex on a single hill among the caves of western
    - Eleven-headed Avalokiteshvara image - the only lithic example found in
    India (Debala Mitra)
    - Paintings depicting Buddha in Bhumi-sparsha-mudra
    - Litany of Avalokiteshavra showing ten fears instead of usual eight
    - water cistern found almost in all the caves, water connectivity across
    all the caves was very masterly done

    The article spans across four chapters, if you want to skip a chapter then
    go to the end of it and you will find link to the next one.

    With this I finish with Mumbai and divert attention again to Karnataka.
