The last cave one typically enters in Ajanta, Cave 27 is partially ruined. It is a vihara (monastery) from the early 7th century that was carved on two levels, but the upper level is partially collapsed. The only interesting features are the carvings on the walls of its front porch and the large Buddha statue in its inner sanctuary.
