UNESCO World Heritage Site - Stone columns of Cave 32, Ellora ©Anupam

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

By Archaeological Survey of India : The Cave 32 known as Indra Sabha is actually a series of shrines dedicated to Mahavira and other Jain divinities aesthetically arranged in double storeys. All these shrines are primarily dedicated to Mahavira, flanked by his attendant deities, Indra on elephant and Ambika on lion. The steps lead into a large shrine on the first floor, with side entrances on the east and west leading to smaller shrines. Invariably these shrines are also dedicated to Mahavira. Here one can see the remains of murals executed on the ceilings and the wall portion of the caves. The pillars, wall portions are exquisitely decorated with sculptures. The pillars are elaborate and depart well with the earlier period traditions. The doorway of the shrine is also elaborately carved with multiple bands of sculptures.
