Borra Caves

Borra Caves discovered by William King George from the Geological Survey of India in 1807.  Caves are located at 43km from Srungavarapukota, 90-95 km from Vishakhapatnam. They are spread over the Eastern Ghats and occupy an area of 2 square kilometers. The one-million-year-old Borra Caves are situated at a height 1400 feet above the sea level. These limestone caves were formed as a result of the action of Gosthani River.  The river, which now flows through these caves, was once upon a time flowing over the limestone area. Due to the pressure exerted by the river water on the mineral deposits, the limestone dissolved and gradually the caves were formed. In the process, giving rise to several interesting structures like - a mushroom, a temple, a mosque, a church and many more.
