Why to visit Ellora Caves
On the 2 kilometre stretch of what must have been a difficult labour digging these exquisite tunnels out of rocks, a fragrance of archaic mystery hangs heavily in the air. Ellora Caves are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world's largest ancient rock-cut cave temples. One of the most magnificent works of art in ancient India was born from a confluence of ideas and shared creative impulses. Although the caverns' deities and idols have been damaged, the paintings and carvings have been preserved. The Rashtrakuta Dantidurga on the mandapa of Cave 15 inscribed between 753 and 757 AD is one of the most famous inscriptions on the Ellora Caves' walls, dating back to the 6th century.
