Ellora Caves

Ellora Caves were created along an amount of about 600 years beween the 5th and the 11th centuries. They are today preserved as Artistic History monuments which keeps surprising people on the generations. These caves unlike the Ajanta were never discovered and are the exact same people that have been in historical days known as Verul Caves. The caves certainly are a several kilometeres northwards of Aurangabad and extend along 34 caves such as Buddhist Chaityas or shrines and Hindu and Jain Temples. The Earliest excavation that you will discover here is the Dhumar Lena in Cave 29. The absolute most attractive is however the large Kailasa Brow in Cave 16 which will be also known as the largest monolithic framework in the whole world. From the very historical days, the Ellora temples and caves have attracted tourists and devotees the exact same way as ever. Residing at Aurangabad Major is the best selection through your trip as typical Ellora Visits are structured from here.

I reached Ellora and with me, one foreigner also got out of the bus. I approach him and asked if he needs any guidance. We both headed towards the main gate and got our tickets (cost = 30rs). Mark was a solo traveler who came from Israel to explore India, he had been traveling since days and had been in some parts of South India and will be going till north. His journey was a motivation for a beginner like me. He helped me in taking some snaps and then he was on his way to explore the caves. Ellora is considered as one of the World Heritage Site by UNESCO. There are over 100 caves out of which 34 are open for the public. The main center of attraction was Cave-16, the Kailasha Temple which is made from a single monolithic rock. I was amazed by seeing the artwork and captured various on my phone. It was a treat for the one who has an interest in history as these ancient monuments had many things to say. I walk around all the caves one by one and it was beauty at its best. It was 5 pm in the clock and I had done with Ellora caves I took a local auto back to the city.
It was built during 757-783 AD by Krishna I who was the uncle of Dantidurga. Built during the 6th to 8th century in the Kalachuris period, the Hindu Caves were built in two phases. Caves 14, 15 , 16 were built in the Rashtrakuta period.We are amazed by its beauty and carvings.The shiva temple is very beautiful.
You guys should definitely visit this place at least once, otherwise you'll miss out on something so incredibly made.👽
