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
