Caves of Trirashmi Hill

Caves of Trirashmi Hill

  • The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has found three more caves in Trirashmi hill in Nashik where the Trirashmi Buddhist caves are located.
  • All the caves have verandahs and the characteristic square stone platform for monks.
  • There are special arrangements for monks to meditate, similar to the Kanheri and Wai caves.
  • The antiquity of the caves is yet to be established; archaeologists studying them, however, believe they could be older than the Trirashmi caves.

  • The Trirashmi or Pandav Leni caves are a group of 25 caves that were carved out of Trirashmi Hill between the 2nd century BC and 6th century AD.

  • The caves complex was documented in 1823.

  • It is now an ASI-protected site and a tourist destination.

  • The Buddhist sculptures and caves (in Nashik) are an early example of Indian rock-cut architecture representing the Hinayana tradition of Buddhism.
