The Ellora Caves are made up of 34 temples and monasteries that were dug by monks into the walls of a cliff in India, created between 600 and 1000 A.D. There are different cave complexes that are dedicated to Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism, showing that there was a good deal of tolerance in India thousands of years ago, more than there is today in many parts of the world.

Visitors can visit these ancient caves and get a look at how these three different groups practiced within close proximity to each other while maintaining their unique beliefs.
