Bhaja Caves is a group of rock-cut caves which go way back to the 2nd century B.C. Located in Pune near Lonavala Maharashtra, the caves are approximately 400 feet above the village of Bhaja on an important ancient trade route. The Bhaja caves have a number of Stupas which is one of their significant features. The Bhaja Caves share architectural design with the Karla Caves. The Bhaja caves provide important facts and details regarding the history of the musical instrument "Tabla".

A notable part of the monument is a group of 14 stupas, five inside and nine outside an irregular excavation. The stupas are relics of monks who died in Bhaja. The huge sculptures feature elegant headdress, jewelry and garlands. They were originally painted with bright colors but later covered in plaster.
