The Ellora Caves lie only a 100km away from the Ajanta caves and is usually clubbed with the visit to Ajanta. One of the best examples of ancient Buddhist civilization, the Ellora caves are a collection of 29 caves, influenced by Buddhist Architecture. Like the Ajanta Caves, even the Ellora caves have paintings which depict the Jataka Tales of Buddha’s stories. These two caves are excellent examples of incomparable engineering and artistic brilliance and count in the most visited tourist spots in the words. These caves quietly narrate stories of the royal prince who left all his riches to adapt to his saint-like characteristics and became the Buddha. These caves are calm and meditative.
