Caves of Ajanta (India). 'They may have been ascetics, but the 2nd-century-BC monks who created the Ajanta caves had an eye for the dramatic. The 30 rock-cut forest grottoes punctuate the side of a horseshoe-shaped cliff . The architecture and towering stupas made these caves inspiring places in which to meditate and live.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/india/maharashtra/ajanta

Ajanta Caves - Two thousand two hundred years ago work began on an extensive series of cave monuments in Maharashtra, India.  Over a period of hundreds of years, thirty one monuments were hewn piece by piece from the rock face.  Then, some speculate around the year 1000AD, they fell in to disuse.  Dense jungle grew around, hiding the caves away from human eyes.
