Scott, Capt. Gilkinson gave Elora, Ontario, that name in honour of the Ellora Caves in India when it was founded in 1839. The Irvine and Grand Rivers, which gave the village its name, are at the bottom of the 80-foot-tall limestone Gorge, which cuts through the centre of the community. The 18th-century architecture in the village’s historic centre creates a stunning setting for both visitors and locals. “Ontario’s Most Beautiful Village” has been awarded to Elora for a number of years running.
