Brilliant place to visit, how well kept, very good infrastructure, well organised. The caves are well maintained and should be visited whilst being in India.

There is so much to learn from this place its not even funny. So much of art and culture to soak. The efforts that were taken back then to exhibit such talent. Remarkable. Only thing is to make sure that you do not visit in the summer. Its too damn hot :-)

The distance of 110 Kms from the city and the road is not too great.cars are parked about 4kms away from the actual location and you are transported in government bus. Food at the only restaurant at the entrance of the caves is descent.

I was looking at History on its face and i loved it. Only someone who has seen it can relate to these caves. The paintings were breathtaking and so were the stone work. A must see for every history and art lover
