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.
