AN HOUR’S TRAIN ride north of Mumble , this national park is one of the few in India within the limits of a city. Surrounded by rolling hills, its deciduous forests harbour a wealth of birdlike and fauna, wild hoar, cobras, as well as the occasional tiger. Tiger and Lion Safaris are offered in fenced-off sections of the park.

The 6thcentury Cave 3 is the most impressive, with its colossal Buddhas, richly carved pillars and brackets and hemispherical stump. The caves are best approached through the Park’s norlhern entrance.
