New Delhi, May 16 (PTI) Union Minister for Tourism G Kishan Reddy Monday inaugurated public amenities at the Kanheri Caves on the occasion of Buddha Purnima, according to an official statement. The minister was in Mumbai on a two-day visit between May 15 and 16, and inaugurated several public amenities at the caves. The Kanheri Caves comprise more than 110 different rock-cut monolithic excavations and is one of the largest single excavations in the country. "Kanheri caves are part of our ancient heritage as they provide evidence of evolution and our past. It is a privilege to inaugurate the works that have been carried out on the occasion of Buddha Purnima. Buddha"s message is relevant even today in addressing challenges such as conflict and climate change. "If we look at the architectural and engineering marvel of heritage sites like Kanheri caves or the Ajanta Ellora caves it signifies the knowledge about art, engineering, management construction, patience and perseverance that people had back then. Many such monuments back then took more than 100 years to be built. Such caves and monuments are difficult to build even now, in 21st century, with so much of technological and engineering expertise," Reddy said. PTI ASG ASG TIR TIR
