We've spent today at the Ajanta Caves, a complex of 30 ancient caves that are carved into a horseshoe shaped gorge.

The caves are a little bit like a Buddhist version of Petra and are cut directly into the rock-face. They were constructed from 200 BC to the 6th century AD and feature some pretty amazing feats of carving. They are considered to be one of the masterpieces of Buddhist religious art.
