The 29 caves at Ajanta are situated in a horseshoe-shaped ravine.

The cave walls are covered with painted narratives of the Jataka tales.

The 34 caves at Ellora are excavated out of the vertical face of the Charanandri hills.

The exterior of the Kailasha temple is carved with niches, plasters, windows and images of deities and mithunas (erotic male and female figures).

The oldest caves at Ajanta date back to 200 BC.

Some caves were built in the Gupta period in 5th century AD.

Built as secluded retreats of the Buddhist monks.

Carved during 350 AD and 700 AD, the rock temples and monasteries at Ellora represent three faiths - Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.

The caves depict the story of Buddhism and are popular tourist sites.

Ellora has the largest single monolithic excavation in the world.
