  1. Such lovely photographs of such a wonderful place. Our own country has so much to offer in terms of artistic and architectural wonders – not to mention the natural ones – one lifetime will never be enough to take them all in.

  2. WoW…some very beautifully captured shots form this place. It is lovely viewing the architecture of this place through your lens….wonderful!

  3. G’day from Australia – I came here through your link on Flyingstars.

    Having grown up in India, I wish I had enough time to see EVERYTHING in that amazing country.

    That second shot is a beautiful perspective.

  4. Raji, I feel the same too!

    Thanks, Kalyan.

    Good day to you too, David Mcmohan! You can always revisit us. Thanks.

    Thanks for letting us know. It very much looks like Kanheri Caves in Mumbai. Your photos are amazing.

  9. Thanks, Indrani, for exploring these caves and describing them beautifully. It’s very sad that no one is paying attention to to it because it’s not in UNESCO heritage list.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have seen these caves in school days. Its beautiful.

  15. Why is it lesser known? Compared to Ajantha?

    Sad state of affairs, I see. These are places that need to be preserved as they are showcases of ancient Indian art and architecture. Let’s hope something will be done before it is too late.

  17. They are most beautiful ! Sadly we are fast losing lots of sites like this thanks to the lack of preservation and maintenance.

    Brilliant place! You’ve captured some lovely shots of this historic treasure. I am planning to visit Ajanta-Ellora this October, so this post is really egging me on 🙂

    The sculptor works are so evocative. Hope the people concerned realize the worth of saving these.

    We had visited this place during school days as a part of educational trip. It was a nice experience, though now forgotten in the cobwebs of memory.
