Buddhist era caves near Lonawala
Apr 2021
If you happen to visit Lonavala then Karla caves are nearby. It is easily approachable by road and then there are about 200 steps to be climbed. There is also a temple of Ekvira - Goddess - Avtar of Maa Durga. The caves come under ASI but only a portion of the caves is open to the public. they ask you to remove the shoes at the entrance but there is no place to sit or keep the shoes in an orderly way despite Rs.25/- as the entrance fees. Something authorities need to look into.

Karla Caves visit
Jan 2020 • Family
These are near Malavli railway station, District Pune. The main cave with the stupa has wooden rafters on its ceiling. There is Ekvira Temple at the entrance of one of the caves. The steps leading to the caves are lined with shops on either side. There are lot of visitors to the temple situated here.

Great climb to exceptional carved caves
Jan 2020
We were in Lonavala and wanted to head to the Karla caves. Being adventurous, we took an auto rickshaw (the most modern we could find) and roared up to the caves. The ride up was half the fun of the trip to the caves. It is worth doing if fit as there are some 200 plus steps up and down. There are places to stop for food and drink on the way and also many stores with religious bits and pieces. The caves are stunning. The whole temple is carved from the hill side. Worth a visit.

Crowded caves
Nov 2019 • Friends
We went here after Bhaja caves (10km away) and these were far busier! So many people around and a long line to get into Ekvira temple. Foreigners have to pay 300 rupee and be prepared to be approached to get photos with the locals!!
