Ajanta and Ellora

The World Heritage sites of Ellora and Ajanta are amazing examples of Indian rock-cut architecture. The Ajanta Caves are all Buddhist while Ellora has Hindu and Jain caves as well. What separates these from other cave dwellings is that the temples are carved from single pieces of rock, work that took centuries in some cases. Both sites are worth a visit and can easily be accessed by nearby Jalgoan and Aurangabad.
