Ellora Caves

Brief Description
These 34 monasteries and temples were dug side by side in the wall of a high basaltic cliff, not far from Aurangabad, in Maharashtra, extending over more than 2 kilometres. Ellora, with its uninterrupted sequence of monuments dating from 600 to 1000 A.D., revives the civilization of ancient India. Not only is the complex of Ellora a unique artistic creation and a technological exploit but, with its sanctuaries devoted to Buddhism, Brahmanism and Janism, it illustrates the spirit of tolerance characteristic of ancient India.
