These caves don't quite have the intricacy of Ajanta, or the might or Ellora, but they're a great hour outing within the city and cave 7 (turn to the right when you drive up the hill, whereas the ticket office you have to visit first is along the road to the left) has some particularly good carvings which are, surprisingly...

The place is just about ok. It is not well maintained. Not much description about its history. Suggest taking service of a guide.

We enjoyed Ajanta and Ellora caves very much and it would be a superb “add on” destination for those who have the time and want to see something different. Caves were carved out of a cliff by Buddhist monks around 2nd century BC and 7th century AD. Besides the Ajanta paintings there are many other sculptures that are interesting. Painting... More

This place can be skipped if you are short on time. This will be a huge let down after visiting the Ajanta and Ellora caves. Also it is very dirty and not well maintained at all.

If you are in India for some time this is a great trek from Mumbai. Rent a car with driver drive to Auragabad stay the first night. Next morning go to Ajanta to see the caves making your way to Ellora for the 2nd night. Check into Hotel Kailas for a front row view and the next morning go to... More

I visited these caves many times. Recent visit was in 2014. You can finish the visit in 90-100 minuets once you are in Aurangabad. The approach road is from dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University. The caves are ancient Buddhist monuments. Many icons of Buddha and Stupa are central attraction. total 5 caves. It is reasonably quite place since most visitors... More

Another treasure of our country not well kept. Request ASI to keep proper supervision and guides who can let us know about the beauty of the caves. Even caves are not properly numbered.

This place is only 6km from Bibi ka Maqbara, so one can club the visit to this place with Bibi ka Maqbara. These caves are not as grand as Ellora caves but still worth a visit. Note that there are 2 sets of caves here, one set is on the east side of the mountain and the other on the... More

The title of this review says it all really. Great views from the top and very little litter as there are so few visitors.
