History of Ellora Caves – Ellora were cut out of the vertical face of the Charanandri slopes

The hollows at Ellora were cut out of the vertical face of the Charanandri slopes between the sixth and tenth hundreds of years. The cutting work started around 550 AD, about the same time the Ajanta Caves (100km upper east) were deserted.

The Ellora Caves were worked at time when Buddhism was declining in India and Hinduism was starting to reassert itself. The Brahmanical development was particularly effective under the support of the Chalukya and Rashtrakuta lords, who managed the vast majority of the work at Ellora – including the sublime Kailasa Temple worked in the 700s.

The last time of building action occurred in the tenth century, when the neighborhood rulers changed dependability from Shaivism (Hinduism committed to Shiva) to the Digambara order of Jainism.

The conjunction of structures from three unique religions serve as a mind blowing visual representation of the predominant religious resistance of India. Thus and others, the Ellora Caves were assigned an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983.
