this is a large group of 32 caves, carved in basalt rock, spread over 4 km on the west facing side of a hill range.
they are three types, budhist, hindu and jain, each group with statuary of that religion.
cave sixteen is the largest and most elaborate.
it has panels from shiv purana, mythological stories about Shiva, his courtship, wedding and more events.
they are close to aurangabad, which is connected by air to mumbai and delhi.
