Pithalkora - Aurangabad India

Pithalkora caves are about 78 Kms from Aurangabad. The intricate work on the sculptured facades in these caves is definitely worth a visit. Nestling within the Satmala range of the Sahyadris, is a group of 13 cave sanctuaries, both chaityas and viharas on a remote land cluster that date back to the 2nd century BC. The elaborate and beautiful sculptured facade of the great vihara is an impressive sight.

 

There are 13 cave sanctuaries embedded in this region. Rich carvings with elaborate details can be seen in these monuments. They form the largest group of Hinayana Monuments in the Northern Deccan. The cave temples, which are cut into the site of a secluded ravine, are mostly monasteries with cells opening of a central hall or verandah; many cave fronts have collapsed. Cave 3 and Cave 4 are of particular interest. The story of Pitalkhora is shrouded, but the site has yielded many unusual sculptures, including wonderful yaksa figures.
