The Pre-wedding Shoot: Ellora Caves

| Published on

“Architecture  should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness”     

Getting married in some weeks? Planning for a pre-wedding photoshoot?    

Would you like the sculptures and the caves to be your allies for the shoot?   

Let me address you to the biggest collection of stone cut caves and sculptures, the Ellora caves

These 34 monasteries and temples, extending over more than 2 km, were dug side by side in the wall of a high basalt cliff, not far from Aurangabad, in Maharashtra. 

Ellora, with its uninterrupted sequence of monuments dating from A.D. 600 to 1000, brings the civilization of ancient India to life. Not only is the Ellora complex a unique artistic creation and a technological exploit but, with its sanctuaries devoted to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism, it illustrates the spirit of tolerance that was characteristic of ancient India.    It's world heritage site with global visitors every day.    

Each cave has a very different story to tell. From the Hinduism to Buddhism, caves speak of ancient skills.     

It's a wonder, how the people ages old were so skilled in crafting these sculptures. That too without any of our modern machines. Can you imagine the work and effort put into it?    

The area is so big that the public buses run inside the compound, to travel from one cave to another. Ages ago these caves were hand-cut and crafted.    

The sculptures would mesmerize you and it would be a tiring day, but the clicks you get there would be a whole tale to tell.  The age-old tales combined with your love story.     

Even the way to the caves is photogenic and filled with jungles and trees. You find ponds and small water bodies around the caves. You can get yourself clicked around them as well, only if you're lucky. Mostly, it's a no-entry zone due to restoration processes.    

Try this place not just as a site to get your love clicked but to witness the age-old crafts and artistic history of our country.    

Welcome to Ellora. These caves will last for-ever and will behold your love.
