Imagine the huge task of rocky mountains carved and made monuments in those days when technology was not heard and only human endeavor and the result is everlasting monuments with amazing sculpture.

Easy climb of around 50 steps. No special timing, but the mornings have better light and (maybe) less crowds. For some strange, incomprehensible reason, selfie sticks are not permitted in the complex. So, take one at your own risk.

A great view and great heritage site. Lot of steps to go to the top but the view from the top cave was breathtaking. The sculpture inside the caves remind of Elephanta caves. Information are available outside each cave and do not spend money on the guides.

Once you have climbed the rocks and seen the view all around and the caves, it a really grand experience; how could they have done this, built this during that era? really worth a visit; Photographing the Red sandstone was a real treat!
