These temples date back from the  V- X  centuries and in 1983 were declared UNESCO  World Heritage. The temples are numbered from S-E and N-V.

In this sacred maze carved in stone brought from Maharasthra there are the largest and most impressive temples of  the ancient India. Here is to be found side by side Hinduism, Buddhism and Jain religion, the three major religions of India.
The 34 caves at Ellora and the 29 caves at Ajanta complex waited more than one thousand years until they were rediscovered in 1819 by John Smith, a British officer  when he gone out to  a hunting of  tigers. He accidentally discovered the entrance to one of the temples of underground caves (cave no. 9).
Shortly after the discovery, the Ellora caves have earned a well deserved reputation.

All the sculptures of Buddhist caves managed to capture the grace, detachment, serenity and compassion inherent  to Buddha. There  is an  overwhelming  smoothness and precision in  details.

India is more than a place on the map, it is a fascinating land full of contradictions and surprises.
