About Chanderi

Bhimsen Caves,ChanderiThe Bhimsen caves are located at a distance of 25 kilometres from Chanderi in the Gadelna village, on the banks of the Urr River. Popular with both Hindu and Jain pilgrims, the site consists of ancient rock-cut caves which have been further carved with the images of Hindu gods and Jain Tirthankaras. An inscription dated to AD 942 has been found which names Vinayakpal as the then king of the region.

Of particular interest is a sculpture of the Hindu god Brahma, carved inside a cavity on the rock face, as Brahma images are very rarely found depicted.
