About Lohani Caves
These rock-cut cells are said to be the primitive residence of Shaiva Yogis. The locals are not sure of the history of these caves but they do know that it was disputed. These caves are completely void of inscriptions and carvings, just a group of sharply cut rocks which appear like cells which are said to have inhabited by humans since the pre-Muslim eras, more precisely the Yogis.
These excavations belong to the 11th and 12th centuries of Shaivism tradition and are quite unique archeological sites. Many temple ruins were discovered here along with sculptures of Hindu gods and goddesses like Shiva and Parvati, some of which can be seen at the Chhappan Mahal Museum.
