Indology study trip to Bedse, Bhaja and Karla
Went on a one-day study trip to the three ancient Buddhist caves near Pune on 29th November. Manjiri Bhalerao - our professor was with us.

All 3 caves have a Chaityagruha and multiple Viharas. Seeing these 3 caves on a single day, we could appreciate the differences in styles. Also, with our newly learnt Brahmi deciphering skills, we had a grand time at Karla reading the various inscriptions.

Now, another whole day devoted to Karla is necessary to properly appreciate the beautiful carvings and read all the inscriptions.
