The region is known for its excellent produce, numerous religious sites and unusually beautiful landscapes, including a bird sanctuary. Foremost among the city’s attractions is the cave temple complex, dating back to the 2nd century BC, one of the largest, best preserved cave temples in the world, which today is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
