Bodhisattva at the entrance to Cave 11 | Photos of Ellora Caves, India
Photo of the carvings at Ellora Cave 11 including this Buddhist Bodhisattva & Hindu Ganga.
The caves at Ellora were carved over several centuries, some are purely Buddhist in content, others Hindu and Jain.
Around Cave 11 they start to be a mix of both traditions and the female figures at the entrance to cave 11 are from the Hindu tradition. The tall image facing the camera is Ganga (name related to the Ganges) who's devotees believe that bathing in the holy river will wash away sin and negativity.
We've put a black frame around the image as a presentation suggestion. The prints are supplied without a border..
