Many historical ruins edify that Buddhist monks use to pray and meditate in caves. Sometimes they use to meditate for months or even years. Some of the famous Buddhist caves still bear instances of such devotion. I want to know about their locations in India and their architectural concept. Please help.

Yes, both of them are Buddhist Caves. They are a major tourist attraction in Maharashtra and are a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India.

There are some caves at Shillong. Are any of them a Buddhist Cave?
