The Ajanta Caves in Maharashtra, India are 31 rock-cut cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BCE.
The caves include paintings and sculptures considered to be masterpieces of both Buddhist religious art
(which depict the Jataka tales) as well as frescos which are reminiscent of the Sigiriya paintings in
Sri Lanka. The caves were built in two phases starting around 200 BCE, with the second group of caves
built around 600 CE.
Since 1983, the Ajanta Caves have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Caves are only about 59
kilometers from Jalgaon Railway station (on Delhi - Mumbai, Rail line of the Central railways, India);
and 104 kilometers from Aurangabad.It will need many of the pags to discribe the beauti of

Ellora is an archaeological site, 30 km (19 mi) from the city of Aurangabad in the Indian state of Maharashtra
built by the Rashtrakuta rulers. Well-known for its monumental caves, Ellora is a World Heritage Site.Ellora
represents the epitome of Indian rock-cut architecture. The 34 "caves" – actually structures excavated out
of the vertical face of the Charanandri hills – being Buddhist, Hindu and Jain rock-cut temples and monasteries,
were built between the 5th century and 10th century. The 12 Buddhist (caves 1–12), 17 Hindu (caves 13–29) and
5 Jain (caves 30–34) caves, built in proximity, demonstrate the religious harmony prevalent during this period
of Indian history.
