Nestled in the heart of Mumbai, the Jogeshwari Caves are a true testament to the rich cultural heritage of India. These ancient Buddhist caves, which date back to the 6th century, are the largest and oldest of their kind in the country. Today, they are adorned with intricate sculptures of Lord Hanuman, Shiva, Ganesha and the revered Kuladevi, or Goddess Jogeshwari, who is worshipped by locals. For those with a discerning eye for architectural beauty, the Jogeshwari Caves are a feast for the senses, and an absolute must-visit for history buffs.
