BOM: Caves

There are some really neat caves just outside of Mumbai, carved by Buddhists over 1000 years ago.

We went there today.

It was really really cool! There were stone staircases everywhere. In the rainy season it is supposed to be best, because there are waterfalls all over the place.

Here is me standing in front of a carving (smiling Buddha) in another cave. This was the largest carving. In general, most of the caves seemed to be for the business of daily life. There was a school-cave, a kitchen-cave, sleeping caves - even a 'washing machine' carved into the rock (see below).
