Ellora - Hindu Caves

We just learned about the Ellora - Buddhist Caves.

Another part of ancient Indian artwork is the Ellora - Hindu Caves.

In the same place as the 12 Ellora Buddhist Caves, there are 17 Caves that were used for Hindu worship.

There are statues of Hindu gods and goddesses in these caves for Hindu people to worship, and the caves were built with a waterfall flowing over top.

These caves were actually carved out close to 100 years before the Buddhist caves were made nearby.
There are pillars, a temple and many statues and rooms for worshipping.
