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.
