Many people may not be aware of this but there is a unique network of sculpted caves in Maharashtra. This is a world heritage site and is now open to public. This ancient cave is said to narrate stories of Mahabharata though the sculptures. Has anyone been there? Please share more about the art and sculptures of this cave.

There are legends that suggest that the great warrior Prince of Chalukya Dynasty - Pulakesin II built the Lord Shiva shrine to celebrate his victory.
