They are home to several invaluable Buddhist sculptures, ancient relief carvings, paintings and inscriptions that date back to 1st century BCE. The caves are divided into two type - the old ones (that are relatively plain and unadorned) and the newer ones (that are decorated and appear more elaborate).

It served to allow entry and access to India. The Gateway of India is a classic example of Indo-Saracenic style with generous inputs from Gujarat’s architecture and other salient features of Hindu and Muslim architectural styles. It is flanked by the statues of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Swami Vivekananda.
