Kanheri caves are located well inside the thick forest area of Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Borivali. These caves numbering about 109, built during the Maurya and Kushana period dates back to 2nd century BC to 9th century. These caves once served as Buddhist Viharas, which was used for meditation, study and living by Buddhist monks and later turned in to monasteries by the 3rd century.

Each of this caves have inscriptions of Buddha’s life and preaching. Kanheri, literally means black in color, is located at a height of about 1500 feet from sea level and is the place offers panoramic views of the city below.
