Both Ajanta and Mahabalipuram have rock-cut monuments, which are famous for their intricate carvings and architectural features. However, they do not belong to the same religious denomination, as Ajanta is predominantly Buddhist, while Mahabalipuram has both Hindu and Buddhist monuments. Additionally, Ajanta dates back to the 2nd century BCE to 5th century CE, while Mahabalipuram flourished between the 7th and 9th centuries CE.
