These 18 caves were carved out around 200 BC during the rule of king Kharavela of Kalinga, nowadays Orissa. They might have been a hideout from his enemies and later became a monastery for Jaina monks. The cool caves are very pleasant in the scorching heat of the Indian planes.

Solche Ansichten von hier noch gar nicht gezeigten Orten finde ich immer extrem anregend und interessant, vor allem wenn sie so sauber gemacht sind wie dieses hier. Gerne mehr davon. VG Martin
