An hour flight from Bombay is Aurangabad, the starting
point of a journey to 2 of the world's most remarkable
rock-cut temples, Ajanta and Ellora.
These monasteries and shrines were hewn out of solid rock
by generations of sculptors.
A few of them date back 2000 years.
The cave temples of Ajanta line in narrow gorge. The
murals are on their inside walls of temples.
Ellora caves, which are Hindu, Buddhist and Jain in
origin, contain sculpture.
Kailasa Temple, regarded as the greatest monolithic
immensity with grace.
