Ellora is a great place to visit

Ellora is really beautiful, nice and calm place. There is Jostling I. E. Grishneshwar Temple, there are Ellora Caves and then there is Ajanta Caves.
It is advisable to stay in Ellora and visit Ellora caves and Grishneshwar Temple. Hotel Kailas is very close to both the attraction and it is the best hotel in Ellora.
For Reaching Ajanta it is advisable that you travel to Ajanta while staying in ellora. By the way Ellora caves are much better than Ajanta.

Amazing caves built in 500BC.

Ajanta caves are made in horse shoe shape of mountain. And the caves are made in sandstone rock. The theme encompasses works of Gautam Budha. The site is so amazing that even the destruction of Gazni has not been able to destroy the beauty.
Ellora caves have three different faiths described through rock carvings. Hindu in centre, jain and budha at two ends. Caves have such large expanse that some part is to be covered by journey through bus. An unforgettable place.

Bewildering

A historical place with paintings of Jainism and Budhism, discovered accidentally by a Britsh Army Officer.
Both the caves and paintings reveal the marvelous paintings many of them in the original pigment that was used then and still bright despite damage by climate, weather etc ., A guide is a must - otherwise you cannot appreciate much.
Caves are in a horse shoe shape. Some caves have nothing much to show but those that have been well preserved and restored by Archaeology Department are brilliant.
If you are coming from Aurangabad, about 20 Kms short of the Ajanta caves, make it a point to go over to the view point. It is a stretch of 7 Kms through two villages. The view of all the caves from the top is fascinating. If you go down the steps from the view point, you can see a beautiful waterfall in a cascade (best in rainy season).
Prebook the Maharashtra Tourism cottages online within the area of the caves. These are absolutely comfortable and you will have a lovely peaceful and enchanting stay there. The caves are closed on one day of the week -either Monday or Tuesday. Check it out.

Family trip to Ajanta and Ellora caves

One should definitely visit these places (Ajanta and Ellora caves) for once. A connect to art and design will be the most important thing you would remember.
If you are a simple person with day to day enthusiasm of travelling to a historical place and enjoy the day while feeling proud of history your country has, you will love the place.
Nearby places have good munchies available to satisfy your need of calories but don't expect exquisite or non fires of the evening glory.

Rediscover the history

Ajanta is in Jalgaon dist. Whereas ellora is in Aurangabad dist. Both are easily accessible by any mode of transport. Both places are of historical importance and are example of unbelievable piece of art by humankind. A must visit for anyone who wants to experience the history and wants to witness something out of the world.

Ajanta

The Ajanta Caves in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra state of India are about 30 rock-cut Buddhist cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BCE to about 480 or 650 CE. [1][2] The caves include paintings and sculptures described by the government Archaeological Survey of India as 'the finest surviving examples of Indian art, particularly painting', [3] which are masterpieces of Buddhist religious art, with figures of the Buddha and depictions of the Jataka tales. [4] The caves were built in two phases starting around the 2nd century BCE, with the second group of caves built around 400-650 CE according to older accounts, or all in a brief period of 460 to 480 according to the recent proposals of Walter M. Spink. [5] The site is a protected monument in the care of the Archaeological Survey of India, [6] and since 1983, the Ajanta Caves have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Nice historical place

It is an adorable place for explore ancient civilizations and a work performed there is unique and unbelievable that it was craved out of signal stone into heritage place. That was created centuries before and by this place we can imagine that ancient civilizations were well developed as they created such places .

Life in Art-Ajanta & Ellora

Journey of life reflects in meandering rivers and uniting forces of universe. Art captures both beautifully. Remember those pencil sketch of childhood. That's what I could feel at caves of Ajanta-Ellora. A king with bow and arrow following a deer as food -hunter or congregation of common people. Goddess Mother rising after finishing off evil. Nandi sitting quietly on high rock. Ganga and ardh-narishwar Shiva or many other deities are making these caves alive Most precious is Budha 's nirvana. Silence's power surrounding and quiet from within. This place is to feel and relive rich heritage. Entire vicinity is magically mystified. Artists' work only speak. Worth visiting for knowledge of past through artistic expression. There's hardly anything to eat. Better to carry water and chocolates. Yup life's hidden meaning is still to be explored. Move on .
