Located around 100 km from the city of Vadodara, the Kadia Dungar site has seven rock-cut caves as well as monolithic lion pillars. A unique amalgamation of nature’s art and humans’ skills, the caves draw admirers from far and wide. It is said that pointed tools were used in the construction of the caves’ splendid layers. Believed to be a delicate artistic technique, the Buddhist architecture of the caves suggests that they were built in the vihara style. It is believed that the caves were in use between the 1st and 2nd centuries.

At the foothills of the caves, a brick stupa can be found. The caves and especially, the stupa are believed to be sites of Buddhist pilgrimage; they are also used as venues for celebration of Buddhist festivals. Another monument to be visited is Ghodki Ghadiyal.
