Ellora caves are around 100km from Ajanta Caves and takes 2hrs to reach.
The caves at Ellora were carved out of the vertical face of the Charanandri hills between the 6th and 10th centuries.The Ellora Caves were built at time when Buddhism was declining in India and Hinduism was beginning to reassert itself. The coexistence of structures from three different religions serve as a splendid visual representation of the prevalent religious tolerance of India.
There are 34 caves in all: 12 Buddhist caves (500-750 AD), 17 Hindu caves (600-870 AD) and 5 Jain caves (800-1000 AD). The caves are numbered roughly chronologically, starting with the oldest Buddhist caves at the south end.
The Buddhist caves (also called Vishvakarma caves) are the earliest of the Ellora Caves, dating from 500 to 750 AD. All except Cave 10 areviharas (monasteries), which were used for study, meditation, communal rituals, eating and sleeping.
The caves become steadily larger and more elaborately decorated as they progress to the north, which scholars have explained by the growing need to compete with Hinduism for patronage. The earliest Hindu caves at Ellora date from 600 AD, right in the middle of the Buddhist period
