Ellora Caves

Locally known as Verul Leni, the Ellora caves are the finest examples of rock-cut temples anywhere in the world. It's mind-boggling to imagine how every one of these 34 caves were conceived, designed and constructed.

Temples built from the skies

Armed with nothing more than hammers and chisels, those that built these caves were extraordinary architects and engineers. While most of the caves and the incredible sculptures that they hold within were constructed by carving the rock from front to back, cave number 16 (the Kailash temple) was constructed by digging vertically downwards.
