Ellora Caves

So, this is the Last major location on my journey - Ellora Caves.

It is an amazing place. They are Buddha, Hindu & Jain caves build between the 6th and 9th century. And what a build - just purely carved out of the rock with the tech and tools from that time.

Some caves are so grand so massive and some carvings are so fine and detailed. Amazing! Everyone is talking about cave 16, the massive temple "Kailash". Two stories with grand hallways on the side and so detailed carvings. It's the biggest of its kind - bigger then the rock churches of Ethiopia. But my favorites are the number 29 with is grand scale made for movie sets and the Buddha Cathedral for it's absolutely assounding acoustics. Worth a visit!
