The Ajanta Caves – Ancient Temples Carved From Rock

Two thousand two hundred years ago work began on an extensive series of cave monuments in Maharashtra, India. Over a period of hundreds of years, thirty one monuments were hewn piece by piece from the rock face.

Then, some speculate around the year 1000AD, they fell in to disuse. Dense jungle grew around them and the caves were hidden away from human eyes.
