Our patience has finally paid back. Just watch this true wonder. A prime example of World Heritage Site, at par with the Angkor or the Colloseum.

There are totally 34 artificial caves build between V and X centuries, out of which 12 are Buddhist, 17 are Hindu and 5 are Jain temples. All of them are monolythic structures i.e they were built solely by removing with the chisel material from a huge rock and not by addition. The process of excavating the largest cave/temple is estimated to have taken around 100 years. While most caves are almost intact, some of them have partially collapsed while few have been reinforced with concrete pillars.
