Parts of World Heritage monuments are the Ellora Caves located at about 400 kms from Mumbai. These cave monuments were patronized by Chalukya kings during 17th Century. The creative dynamism of the artists can been seen from the sculptures where they drew themes from the Hindu mythology and transformed the rocks into a cavalcade of God and Goddesses. The Ellora Caves lay in the lap of the Chamadari hills extending over a mile and a quarter in the north-south direction. They are situated 18 miles northwest of Aurangabad. Ellora represents some three hundred years of great experiments carried out by different faiths with their very different iconography and structural compulsions. Ellora first appears to the visitors as an irregular ridge of rock, rising vertically from the ground.
