Buddhist Cave in Uperkot Fort, Junagadh

I saw 2000 year old caves, which were most likely Buddhist monastery, for the first time in Uperkot Fort of Junagadh. The cave was built three stories under the ground. Keeping in mind the hot climate of Gujarat, the thought process of building underground structures and having engineering capability to construct it was fascinating. The whole structure was sculpted out of one rock. Inside the cave was cold and pleasant. Though I would be scared to go in when night falls.
