Located 102km from Aurangabad and dating back to the 2nd century BC, the caves of Ajanta are older than those of Ellora, and were rediscovered in 1819 by a party of British officers whilst out hunting for tigers. Abandoned after the late 7th century, the numerous rock-hewn caves are adorned with Buddhist sculptures and frescoes. These masterpieces tell the life of the Buddha and clearly portray the lifestyle of the monks, artists and craftsmen who inhabited Ajanta.
