Khambhalida Caves

Khambhalida Caves in Rajkot

At Khambhalida there are three caves, the central one being a 'chaitya' with a worn out stupa. The entrance of the chaitya is flanked by two large sculptures of the Bodhisatvas-Padmapani on the right and Vajrapani on the left. These caves dates back to 4th-5th century AD and are scooped out from the local limestone rock.

""KHAMBHALIDA" My native and birth place small and beautiful. Located in lap of valley. Spectacular and full of nature specially in monsoon. You can find thousand of different plants and birds. As well ancient caves known "Lord Buddha Caves" more then 1700 years old. You may feel peaceful place like "PIN DROP SILENT"."

"One of the very few Buddhist caves in Gujarat. One big cave in very good shape even today and it is worth the visit to this place. Others are not in good shape. The government has put in good efforts to keep the surrounding and the cave itself in good condition. "
