Sample Answer :

People definitely experience excursions to several places in their lifetime. Visiting places containing different essence brings amusement and joy to our daily ordinary lives. I also happened to visit a place embodying the ancient art and culture. Through my interactions and reading of inscriptions, I truly added to my knowledge. They were the majestic caves of Ajanta and Ellora, located near Aurangabad in Maharashtra. They are basically the mural paintings on walls and roofs dedicated to the teachings of Hinduism and Buddhism. They were built by Rashtrakuta rulers of 7th century.  I visited them in my school summer break, back in 2020.

I went there along with my family; my mother, father and my elder brother. My brother was having his college break at that time. My brother always used to talk about the caves as a masterpiece of art and culture. So, my father applied for leave at his office, made our travel bookings by train and we together left for Aurangabad.

Well, as for me, it was a fascinating experience visiting the caves which are a museum of ancient art and culture. I was mesmerized to see the craftsmanship of the workers involved in this architecture. I saw the wall paintings and engravings of several Hindu gods and goddesses. Natural kaleidoscopic play of colours in these paintings is still intact. Krishna temple is the most fabulous temple inside. I totally felt like carried away by the tides of time. I was amazed to see the art marvel built in times of no technology and heavy machines. Simultaneously, I was getting goose bumps after reading and discussing the details of various temples in the precinct.

That trip triggered my love for ancient Indian art and culture. I even recorded the details in my diary. If I get another chance to revisit, I would definitely be more than willing. Those memoirs of the beauty carved in the stone are the indelible imprints in my mind, which keep on calling me for another visit.
