Amidst beautiful environment, the location of these caves is on a small hillock and near a spring which is just perfect and appealing for nature and archeological lover.

Depicting the Buddhist culture and history, Khambhalida caves have become a point of a visit in Gondal which is near to Rajkot. Looking back, it is known by the archeological survey that the caves were carved from limestone by a Saint of the Dinyan branch of Buddha tradition. The entrance is accentuated with two large sculptures of Bodhisattva-Padmapani and Vajrapani. You will surely be stunned to witness the rich work of art that still remains intact and stands as a symbol of the Buddha tradition.

"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. "
