A Bhaja Experience

Today we visited the Bhaja caves. Truly a beautiful sight! We hiked to the top and despite the heavy rain, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The Bhaja caves is an ancient heritage site located in Bhaje, Maharashtra, India. A group of 22 rock-cut caves dating back to the 2nd century B.C. The caves are 400 feet (122 meters) above the village of Bhaja. This monument belongs to the Hinayana Buddhism sect in Maharashtra. Hinayana Buddhists followers believe that everyone needs to gain Nirvana (the ultimate Buddhism goal) on their own, while the Mahayana Buddhists believe that the Buddha is a God.

It has truly been a spiritual experience for me, learning and exploring this ancient heritage site.
