#About the Bhaje Caves: Bhaje caves is a group of 22 rock-cut caves dating back to the 2nd century BC located in Pune district, near Lonavala, Maharashtra. The caves are 400 feet above the village of Bhaje, on an important ancient trade route running from the Arabian Sea eastward into the Deccan Plateau. It belongs to the Hinayana Buddhism sect in Maharashtra. The most impressive monument is the large shrine — chaityagriha — with an open, horseshoe-arched entrance. the chaityagrha is the most prominent aspect of the caves, and one of the earliest of the type.
 
#About the Bedse Caves: Bedse Caves are a group of Buddhist rock-cut monuments situated in Maval taluka, Pune District, Maharashtra, There are two main caves. The best known cave is the chaitya (prayer hall – Cave 7) with a comparatively large stupa, the other cave is the monastery or vihara (Cave 11). They are marked by a profusion of decorative gavaksha or chaitya arch motifs. There is also a small stupa outside to the right of the main caves. Until around 1861 the caves were regularly maintained – even painted. These works were ordered by local authorities in order to please British officers who often visited caves. This has caused loss of the remnants of plaster with murals on it.
