Overview

This private tour will take you to visit Ajanta's wondrous cave temples, a World Heritage site, that cut the rocks into a dramatic crescent-shaped gorge. On the top the gorge, there is a beautiful waterfall that drops over the mountain rim in a series of seven steps to a pool below. It is dated back to the 2nd century B.C. covering a span of 800 years and during the period professional artists helped Buddhist monks to create magnificent murals narrating the story of Buddha in his cycle of incarnations. The caves are etched and painted with vegetable and mineral dyes and the paintings have languorous beauty and magical eloquence.
