At Ajanta, the paintings on the walls, illustrate the events in the life of Gautama Buddha.

The Ellora Cave temples: These temples are an epitome of Deccan rock-cut architecture. Over a 2 km long stretch of caves where monks of different religions carved out sculptures with remarkable attention to detail is a spectacle in itself. The largest monolithic here is the Kailasa Temple in Cave 16 - which took 17,000 laborers, 150 years to complete.Both the Ajanta & Ellora caves are an amalgamation of Buddhist, Jain & Hindu sculptures, paintings & fresco's. This is testimony to the fact that the three religions lived in harmony for a long time.

Elephanta Caves:These caves are believed to see the rise and spread of both the two sects of Buddhism, the Hinyana and the Mahayana, and enough examples of architecture are available still in the caves. The 30 caves, including the unfinished ones, seem to carry a distinct charm and represent the true faces of the flourishing Buddhist architecture, art, and obviously the religious influence at that period of time.
