Excursions

Ellora caves : Most famous caves, among the entire Buddhist cave in India, these have elaborated sculptures, finely finished images of Buddha among many other antique artistic pieces. These caves were built in between 350Ad and 750AD and are more important due to the amalgamation of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain faiths. All three types of caves are found in the place, which is a rare happening anywhere else.

Daulatabad : This city has a fort built by the Bhilam Raja of the Yadav Dynasty and is above a hill. The place has a mystic effect, and attracts many tourists due to its charm and vitality.

Ajanta caves : Unlike Ellora, these are predominantly Buddhist caves and represent a fine picture of the flourishing era of Buddhism in India. In a series of 29 caves, one can easily see the effects of Both sects of Buddhism, the Hinyana and the Mahayana, through the architecture and sculpture of these caves.
