风的呢喃1963India travel on the fifth day of Aguabad (Avatar Grottoes) February 26, 2019, sunny 33 degrees last night from Mumbai to Aguabad by night 22, arrived safely at 7:30 a.m. Find accommodation, put your luggage, chartered a car to the World Heritage Avatar Grottoes. Aveda Grottoes, located about 106 km northwest of Aurangabad, a key town of Maharashtra, the Degan Plateau, India. In 1983, UNESCO listed the Aveda Grottoes as a cultural heritage in the World Heritage List. Xuanzhai, a high priest of the Tang Dynasty, visited this place in India in 638 AD, and gave a vivid description of the grottoes in the Book of the Western Regions of the Great Tang Dynasty, which is the earliest written record of the Aveda grottoes. Aveda Grotto is a Buddhist temple and monastery built by ancient Buddhists in India. The word Aveda comes from the Sanskrit word Agentina, which means "no thought" and "no thought". The caves were excavated in the 3rd century BC, when Buddhism was designated as the national religion. Pious Buddhists found this hilly, undulating, scenic valley for worshiping the Buddha, studying the scriptures, and cultivating their own nature. It is said that the excavation lasted nearly 1000 years. Aveda Grottoes are 29 caves, with a steep wall of about 76 meters, stretching from east to west along 550 meters. Four of them are Buddhist halls, with a stupa of storied sari and 25 monastic houses. In addition to architecture and sculpture, and famous for ancient Buddhist murals, the main theme of the Buddha's story and the story of Bensheng, is the most famous art treasure of the Aveda Grottoes, and is also the oldest existing ancient Indian mural remains, known as the Louvre of the East. Foreigner tickets are 600 rupees (Indians 40 rupees). Take off your shoes and take pictures inside the grottoes. No flash. Other measures do not seem to see special, some are equipped with air conditioning, should be to protect the frescoes. All the grottoes can be entered, the ticket equivalent to less than 60 yuan ah the site really shocked, are all chiseled out of the stone, too beautiful, each grotto is large, and basically open, not like the Tianchao only open a few. It took three hours to drive from Orangabad, 33 degrees of temperature plus road repairs, which was really hard. But when we climbed breathlessly up, the grottoes were stunningly beautiful! If you have the opportunity to come to Nanyin, recommend to walk around, you will not be disappointed.

Temple
煊煊煊煊The Bibi-ka-Maqbara Mausoleum (Bibi-ka-Maqbara), built in the 17th century, was the temple of the first concubine of Emperor Aurangzeb of the Mughal dynasty. The design of this mausoleum is similar to that of the Taj Mahal, but it does not use such a large national fund. Therefore, the scale of the mausoleum is small, but it is equally exquisite, so some people call it "Little Taj Mahal".

M34***68The caves, which are listed as world heritage sites, are the Aveda Buddhist Grottoes, 340km from Mumbai and 105km from Aurangabad, known as the Louvre of Ancient India. They were abandoned for thousands of years and discovered by the British. The Aveda Grottoes, located on the cliff cliffs, are very old, and are nearly 2000 years old, and are even older than the Elora Grottoes, and are only confined to Buddhism. The unparalleled first-class frescoes are the greatest feature here, mainly expressing the art and history of Buddhism, as well as the life of the ancient Indian royal family and the Sinhala royal family that conquered Sri Lanka.
