"Very interesting place. Rock cut sculptures spread over a large area in the Ellora hills. Awesome structure in the main cave, a huge shiva temple and an amazing rock cut gallery. Apart from that there are as many as 32 caves covering a lot of historical aspects of Indian society. From Lord Buddha to Lord Mahavira every era has been mentioned."

"The sculptures in the caves are really amazing to look at, and cave 16 is mind blowing. It was carved out of a single piece of rock and it's phenomenal."

"Do visit Kailash Mandir. A Gigantic Shiva Mandir built from a Single Mountain rock. No joints, or pieces. A master piece. Nowhere in the world, except In India, can you see such great work. "

"All the caves has very good sculptures. Kailasa temple is the best among all Ellora caves. This temple is caved in from top to bottom. It's unimaginable the way it has been done."
