Ajanta Caves were carved out of a massive rock face in Maharashtra and took 800 years to complete. There is a series of ornate frescoes featuring masterpieces of Buddhist art. The caves are split into two series, one of which was built in 200 BCE and the other completed around 600 CE. Each of the caves opens into grand halls with the floors and ceilings decorated with details depictions of the Jataka stories of Buddha’s past life. A totally fascinating place to see.
