Classic Ajanta Ellora Tour



The Ajanta and Ellora caves, both designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, are considered the pinnacle of Buddhist art and are must-visit destinations for anyone traveling to India. The Ajanta cave temples consist of around 30 caves of varying sizes, constructed intermittently along the meandering Waghora River, spanning approximately 550 meters. These caves are known for their Buddhist rock-cut architecture.

Located about 70 kilometers south of Ajanta, the Ellora cave temples are a remarkable complex that spans 500 years of history. Monks from Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism meticulously carved monasteries, chapels, and temples into a 2-kilometer-long cliff. By exploring the 34 caves in sequence, you can trace the evolution of religious art over time. Ajanta captivates with its scroll-like flat-plane art, while Ellora impresses with its three-dimensional sculptures.

Appreciating these two great cave temple complexes, Ajanta with its scroll-like flat-plane beauty and Ellora with its intricate three-dimensional sculptures, allows you to savor the rich heritage of ancient India.
