Buddhist caves in the Pune district adjoining the Elvira temple. There is not much to see but it is famous, drive carefully as it is on the hill. You have to take around 15 mins of steps.

The Buddhist caves are remarkable, carved inside a mountain , starting down to up. The carving and the height of the caves shows the dedication of Buddhist monks. A well marked script of Satvahanas is also available at spot in Pali language. As can be seen at every historical ancient place , one of the sculpture is coloured and dress as Devi Ekvira and worshipped by Hindus at present.

Exciting experience. Curved in pre Christ period , huge and mind blowing. Enjoyed every moment of it. There are many caves in whole of Maharastra ,this cave is similar to Ananta Ellora .
Worth visiting .

The main cave was interesting, didn't realise that there was only two caves to see. Felt that the 300r entrance fee was a bit steep. Better to visit Ajanta and Ellora, far better.

Amazing art & architecture. One needs to read-up on the history of these rock-cut caves before visiting.

It is a 10 min drive up the hill. Can be quite crowded for parking and might involve a wait time. 20-30 mins climb to temple & caves.

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.
