about pandav caves

A famous tourist landmark, Pandav Caves are perched on a small hillock. According to local legends and popular belief, the caves provided shelter for the Pandavas during their period of exile as stated in the Hindu epic Mahabharata, The place consists of 6 caves, one each for Yudhishtir, Bheem, Arjun, Nakul, Sahdev and Draupadi. Currently a protected monument of Pachmari, these 1,000-year-old rock-cut caves overlook an attractive garden.

Among the caves, 'Draupadi Kuti' is the most clean and airy, while the dark one is called as the 'Bheem Kothari'. Apart from offering a shelter to Pandavas, the caves also acted as a refuge to Buddhist monks in 1st Century.
