People do know about the Karle-Bhaje caves near Pune but have hardly heard of Bedse Caves. Truly trio logy of the caves in Mawal Region can't be completed without Bedse.
Bedse Caves are not more than a 20-25 minutes of walk from village Bedse.
They are facing east so it is obviously advisable to visit the caves early morning as in sun light the beauty of carvings is doubled.
The period can be traced back up to 1st century b.c.
A very famous incidence is told about the caves. Till around 1861 the details in paints, the carvings on the walls and the stupas were in proper stage. A British officer after hearing about this arranged his visit there. When local officer came to know about this, he urgently employed labour and clean the caves and painted the walls.
The Caves today are not well cared of. But still their beauty definitely catches hold of an aesthetic mind.
