Kondane Caves were built between 1st and 6th centuries in Colaba District of Maharashtra. These caves surround Rajmachi Fort and are an excellent example of Buddhist architecture. There are several caves with cells, chaityas and viharas, most of which are in ruins today. In construction they resemble Bhaja caves to some extent, while retaining some uniqueness of their own. Multi pillared halls, carvings of Buddha, inscriptions, men and women in several poses are characteristic Kondhane Caves. These ruined caves are now governed by Archeological Department of India and are mostly visited by art students. Tourists must reach Shri Rampur from Karjat and 10-seater rickshaws are available from here to Kondivane. The caves can be reached by a 1.5 hour trek from Kondivane and it is wise to carry food and water to the place. The beautiful Ulhas River can be seen flowing along the route, which makes it slippery and requires careful trekking. A waterfall at the caves is rejuvenating and visitors choose to drench themselves here.
