Dear Friends and family,
We arrived in Aurangabad early morning. Getting a hotel room was in itself a big task of negotiation etc. We have mainly ccome here to see tha Ajanta and Ellora cave which are dated back to 2ed century bc to 6 century ad. The Ajanta caves are made up of some 30 caves and are oldest and depicts the evelution of hinayana to mahayana budhism. caves without the statue of Budda just the stupa, Mandala etc. to Caves with larger than life Buddha statue. Ellora Caves are combination of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain Religious icons. Proof that all religion can live side by side in peace and hermony. There are also some newer hindu temples and muslim masque, fort etc. in the area that are worth seeing.
