Take a glimpse into the rich culture and legacy of Mumbai on this 5-hour private tour. Visit the glorious Kanheri caves, chiseled out of a massive basaltic rock located in the Borivali National Park. The caves demonstrate Buddhist influence on art and culture between 1st century BC and 10th century CE. Follow the mythology surrounding Lord Buddha’s life explained by our art historian that links Buddha to the 10 avataras of Lord Vishnu-the Hindu God. Buddha thus becomes an inseparable part of story-telling in Indian classical dance. Post lunch watch a scintillating Bharatanatyam dance performance by the renowned Sankhya Dance Group. The performance brings to life mythological characters of divine origin with a special piece on Buddha’s life story. The idea behind this tour is that tourists get an unforgettable experience of the rich Indian mythology and culture and understand how the two are irrevocably connected. The tour includes a traditional Indian lunch.
