    “Poor maintenance”

    Caves which are now getting dilapidated because of lack of maintenance and lack of awareness of people who visit them.

    “A hidden gem”

    While the overall experience is quite short, but the caves still are quite a sight to see. Make sure to go a day when the weather is nice.

    Hidden Historical Structure

    The place was very peaceful. The caves are based on Indian ancient architecture and they looks like a very planned structure.

    History!!

    Standing within these caves made me wonder about the history behind the caves - who all had lived there...for how long...what the different "rooms" were...how they had been carved out of the rock etc.

    Not compulsory

    The caves, though historical and listed protected monument, are pretty ordinary. There's nothing that leaves you awestruck or gives a feeling of reverence. Not worthy because of the journey time.
