Create an itinerary including Ellora Caves
Discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ellora Caves, a series of 34 temples carved in the Charanandri hills. The majestic, stone-cut cave temples were built between the fifth and 10th centuries, carved into a tall basalt cliff in an uninterrupted sequence. Despite some of the structures being dedicated to Hindu deities, and others serving as Jain and Buddhist monasteries, the temples harmoniously coexisted for hundreds of years. Admire the architectural splendor, elaborate detailing, and intricate decorations of the massive, multi-religion complex.

  • Ellora cave are beautiful and gorgeous place to see.. Lots of excitement and joy you will get at Ellora cave.. Beautiful entrance and garden at the main gate give superb look to cave.. Ancient architecture & idols are available to see. Really it's a beautiful place.. Must visit once in lifetime.
  • World class tourist place. Recommend to visit during rainy or winter time. Amazing!! Will require a whole day trip if you want to walk through all the caves. Bring drinking water during hot summer walk.
