Exploring the Mahakali Caves

The Mahakali Caves, a group of Buddhist Caves, is situated in the eastern part of the suburb of Andheri in Mumbai. It is also known as Kondivate Caves, Kondivate being the village nearby. The caves have a number of simple viharas (monasteries)  and a caityaghara (prayer hall). The Caves have no relation to the Hindu Goddess Mahakali but a small stupa is worshipped in an ashram near the caves as Goddess Mahakali. In the opinion of scholars, the Kondivate Caves is a satellite settlement of the Kanheri Caves.
