Ellora caves,India

Hello friends
  Last week I went to explore the Cave sculptures and paintings  in Ajantha and Ellora caves in Aurangabad.Here are some photographs taken of Ellora caves. It was an wow factor experience indeed. Ellora was beautiful you could go on looking at each pillar and post and not complete the experience even in a month.What I could see was for few hours that is all.I took these photographs but after a while you forget to click since you need to absorb the beauty into your memory.Its a tiring journey to the interiors of Aurangabad and lots of walking and climbing.So if you ever do it take your time and enjoy.
