Bhamchandra Caves – Bhamboli

Bhamchandra Caves are a set of rock-cut excavations located near Bhamboli, 40 km north of Pune in Maharashtra. There are six caves in total at Bhamchandra, three are natural caves and a further three that probably started as natural caves and have been extended considerably. In addition to the caves, there are at least five cisterns evenly distributed across the site.

The Hero Stones Of Kikali

Kikali is a small village 15km north of Satara in Maharashtra. Located just north of the village is the ancient Bhairavnath Temple, a wonderful site to visit and will feature in a another blog post shortly. Whilst the temple itself is worthy of any visit, I was struck by the large number of hero stones that were lining the perimeter of the temple complex.
