Ellora is a sacred site in Maharastra, central India. The Ellora Caves are listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is celebrated for the Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain temples and monuments. They were carved from the local cliff rock in the 6th to 8th century.

The Ellora caves are one of the largest rock-cut monastery temple cave complexes in the world. Famous for the largest single monolithic excavation, Ellora was built by Krishna I. He was the uncle of Dantidurga.

These caves were built during the Kalachuris period. Hindu caves were built in two phases, with Caves 14, 15, and 16 built in the Rashtrakuta perod.
