Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has found three caves in Buddhist Caves Complex in Nasik, Maharashtra.
- Newly discovered caves are being discovered about two centuries after the British military officer documented Tri-Rashmi Buddhist caves, which is also called as Pandav Leni, on a hill in Nashik.
- Antiquity of caves is yet to be established. They may have been dwellings of Buddhist monks.
- Archaeologists believe, these caves could be older than Trirashmi caves.
