India has countless places and monuments that have recorded the political,
religious and social history of this land.
Elephanta and Ellora talk of two places that have enshrined many stories that
shape our heritage. The Elephanta Caves narrate stories from mythology,
capturing in stone oft-repeated tales, like the descent of the Ganga and the
wedding of Shiva and Parvati.
The Ellora caves, built between the 5th and 10th centuries, bear testimony to
the glorious rule of the Rastrakootas. The caves are actually temples and
monasteries carved into the mountain.
Considered to be the site of Indraprastha, the legendary capital of the
Pandavas, Delhi boasts of a 5000-year old history. The Historic City of Delhi
captures moments from the city’s past, taking one through the rise and fall of
the many dynasties that came to rule it.
