  • The eddakal caves is very beautiful. People going on bikes are going to love the place as it's very fun to ride there. The place has both steps and little distance to walk. It has many parking slots.....  more »
  • I visited the caves with some friends on the weekend. Worth to visit, but avoid peak time. The long staircase to reach pressed in the crowd made it (unfortunately) less fascinating.  more »
