The Ajanta and Ellora Caves are located near Aurangabad, Maharashtra, and are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Ajanta Caves depict the stories of Buddhism spanning from the period from 200 B.C. and 650 A.D. The 29 caves were built by Buddhist monks using simple tools like hammer and chisel, and were the retreats of Buddhist monks who taught and performed rituals in the Chaityas and Viharas, the ancient seats of learning.

The Ellora (Verul) Caves have been Carved during 350 A.D. to 700 A.D. These structures represent the three faiths of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.. The 12 caves to the south are Buddhist, the 17 in the centre dedicated to Hinduism, and the 5 caves to the north are Jain.

One can see both using Aurangabad as base camp.

(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
