I feel this place should be a part of 7 wonders of the world, it is beautiful, amazing, showcases the talent of people who made the drawings centuries ago, truly magnificent to see the craft work.

I've been coming to Ajanta caves since I was a little boy (I live but an hour away, so became the unofficial tour guide whenever extended family or friends came to visit) and as such, I've seen Ajanta evolve into a truly world class heritage site. The administration has stepped up the convenience factor for tourists by leaps and bounds... More

If you are guest at MTDC T-Junction entry to the bus starting point is free. All the caves are awsome, masterpiece in itself. Do not forget to take a good flashlight and a DSLR Camera or camera which can take snaps in extreme low light. Dont forget to buy a travel guide from the reception/ticket counter at the start of...

If you need to understand how humans lived in 4th or 5th century AD, then a visit to these caves is a must. The steps might look hard at first, but once you cross that, then its discovery of things and you forget all the hardships faced. Very well maintained by ASI

This place has many caves. Give yourself a lot of time to visit all the caves ( 4-5 hours). Take a flashlight with you. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes since you will have to go up and down many stairs .It was worth every minute of it.
