    Ellora caves are carved out of one single piece of gigantic rock. One should visit it at least once in their lifetime.

    There is one very famous Hanuman Temple on your way to ellora caves.

    Few good dhabas on that road too, which used to be our weekend hangout spot :troll:

    There are some nice caves in Borivali too. One has to drive further deep into Sanjay Gandhi National Park.
