Rajpuri Caves, Pachgani

About 7 odd kilometers from the Pachgani bus stand, on the Ambral road, is the village of Shindola. Located near this village are the ancient caves called ‘Rajapuri Caves’ or ‘Kartikeya Caves’. There are 4 caves and a kund. As the main temple is of Kartikeya, women are not allowed here. Some or the local villager will around to enforce this. Our culture has such funny twists. It is sad that people kill their own culture by not changing it appropriately with the changing times.

There is nothing else around so unless you are a bored male or group of males there is no point in visiting this place.

Photos are from our visit in Jan 2021.
