A tour of the Ajanta caves will make you marvel at the architectural and artistic capabilities of that period. The total number of caves including the unfinished ones is 30, out of which Caves No. 9, 10, 19, 26 and 29 are chaitya caves and the rest are viharas or the monasteries. The caves are hewned out of granite cliffs on the inner side of a 20 m long ravine along the Waghora River.
