The Cave Temples
The one-of-a-kind Ajanta and Ellora caves are located some distance from each other, close to Aurangabad district in the state of Maharashtra. Both groups of caves have been declared as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Built many centuries ago with apparently simple tools, they are known for their marvelous rock-cut architecture and beautiful murals.
