The Ajanta Caves are one of the world's greatest historical monuments recognized by UNESCO. These are 30 rock-cut cave monuments located in the Aurangabad district of Maharashtra dating back to the 2nd Century BC to 600 BC. These caves have extraordinary paintings and sculptures which are considered to be the epitome of Buddhist religious art. The most notable thing about these caves is that they have been entirely crafted from hands using just hammers and chisels.
The Ellora caves are a World Heritage site located 29 km North-West of Aurangabad. These caves represent the pinnacle of Indian rock-cut architecture. There are a total of 34 caves extending over more than 2 km - 12 Buddhist, 17 Hindu, and 5 Jain caves built between the 5th century and 10th century. Structures dedicated to Buddhism, Jainism, and Hinduism in the same complex also illustrate the spirit of tolerance in ancient India.
Daulatabad Fort :
Originally the mountainous Deogiri fortress, it was an old Hindu stronghold, finally captured and plundered by deceit in the 13th century. Made the capital of the Delhi Sultanate 100 years later by Tughlaq, it was the prime fortress of many successive dynasties in the Deccan. Daulatabad is famous for its series of trick defenses, secret escape routes, 5 km long wall, and artificial scarping. Important monuments within the fort include the Jami Masjid - now the Bharat Mata Mandir, the Chand Minar, Elephant Tank, and Chini Mahal, or Chinese Palace.
