If I had more time to write, I would. For now, I leave you with these images. And this thought:
Our guide yesterday told us that this area has Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, and Jains all living together in harmony. They may at times find areas of conflict on the political arena, but in terms of religion, they all live together peacefully. The area, in fact, is known for this beautiful trait of multi-religion harmonious living. If only the rest of the world could live this way!
We spent the day at the caves. The temperatures reached an unseasonably warm 98 degrees. The dry heat had us wiped! Even the locals felt the heat. However, the caves were incredible!
