Battery-powered vehicles enable tourists with disabilities to visit rock-cut caves in India.
The Ajanta Caves in India are excavated in a rock surface nearly 2,500 feet high.
Battery-powered vehicles will enable tourists with disabilities to visit the Ajanta and Ellora rock-cut caves in Arangabad, Maharashtra, India.
Provided by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), the vehicles will accommodate up to five people per trip to the caves.
Carved on the hillsides of the Sahyadri ranges, the temples of the Ellora Caves will be accessible via existing ramps. Ellora represents one of the largest rock-hewn monastic-temple complexes in the entire world.
The Ajanta Caves are about 60 miles from Ellora. These caves are excavated in a horseshoe-shaped bend of rock surface nearly 2,500 feet high overlooking a narrow stream known as Waghora.
To make the sites more tourist-friendly, ASI will completely revamp the existing facilities.
