Why to visit The Ajanta Caves

The Ajanta caves are a group of three rock-cut Buddhist caves that date from the 2nd century BC to 650 CE. The Ajanta caves are one of India's most prominent landmarks, with numerous magnificent paintings and sculptures illustrating the country's rich cultural past. The cave, which is naturally utilised as a retreat by Buddhist monks, portrays the peacefulness of Buddhism through its basic yet stunning art. The caverns' basic designs are known as 'Chaityagrihas' and 'viharas.' The centrepieces of this place are statues of Lord Buddha and sceneries from ancient Jataka tales.
