Ajanta caves have the wild, crescent-shaped ravine pierced with more than twenty Buddhist cave temples. This makes it one of India's most spectacular sites. The Ellora caves are the finest specimens of cave - temple architecture, which house elaborate facades and exquisitely adorned interiors. Aurangabad caves excavated between the 2nd and 6th century AD carved out of the hillside are another fine piece of architecture, housing the most stunningly intricate carvings.
