There are thousands of caves in India. Sure, everyone knows about Ajanta & Ellora and the Elephanta (in pic) caves, but what of the others? From Andhra Pradesh to Odisha, here are some more gorgeous caves and cave temples that you should visit
1. BORRA CAVES, ANANTHAGIRI HILLS, ANDHRA PRADESH
The name comes from Borra Guhalu in Telugu — ‘Borra’ means something that has bored into the ground and ‘guhalu’ means caves. They are located in the Ananthagiri hills of the Araku valley of the Visakhapatnam district in Andhra Pradesh. In 1807, William King George of the Geological Survey of India discovered the caves.
The caves are basically Karstic limestone structures extending to a depth of 80 m, and are considered the deepest caves in India. The caves distinctly exhibit a variety of impressive speleothems ranging from very small to big and irregularly shaped stalactites and stalagmites.
