Stupas in caves


Small stupas in Kanheri caves in the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Borivali.
The stupa itself is a symbol of the Buddha, and more accurately, of his enlightened mind and presence. The mound itself is said to represent the form of the seated Buddha, meditating and striving towards enlightenment.
