About the Ajanta & Ellora Caves
Ellora Consultancy has been named after the Ellora Caves in India.
The Ajanta caves and Ellora caves (6th century) are located in Maharashstra, near Aurangabad.
These caves are man-made temples cut from massive granite hill rocks, made by generations of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain Monks, who lived, worked and worshipped in the caves. The caves and temples contain colossal statues, carved pillars, and meditation rooms.
Very special at Ellora is the Kailash Temple or Kailashnath. It took 150 years to build and three million cubic meters of rock was displaced. In March an annual Ellora festival of Classical dance and music is held inside the caves.
The Ajanta and Ellora caves are part of the UNESCO World Heritage.
In these modern times and a fast changing world, we remember and deeply respect the intricate and amazing art that our ancestors have created at Ajanta and Ellora. That these gifts to the world may inspire us all.
