So you may already be 'caved out' after visiting Ajanta and Ellora. But I suggest you consider also visiting this small set of caves just 10 mins outside Aurangabad - on a new day. Arranged in two small groups 1km apart the small intimate caves are different to their famous brethren - in the sense that the chamber has been... More

Nive to see. You lust have a driver ito go there. We weng in february and it was already very hot. Climbing the stairs where there is jo shadow was hard. The site may not be worth it. I saw great green parrots there. The advantge of these caves is that they are not very crowded compared to ellora.

These caves aren't quite as elaborate as the more famous Ellora and Ajanta Caves, but they are definitely worth a look (best to see these before the other 2). There were only a few Indian tourists and local students when we went and we were able to look in relative peace (after letting the locals take pics of us!). One... More

The City of Aurangabad have rich archeological sites and hence Aurangabad caves does not attract importance it deserves. The climb to the caves is steep ,more than Ajantha and Ellora..But the climb is worth it. You would enjoy it more if you visit the caves first before visiting Anantha and Ellora. There is ameditation centre near the caves.

The caves are good. If these caves were not located near ajanta and ellora, they would have got much more appreciation from the visitors !

The climb to these six caves is steeper than Ajanta and Ellora but worth every step. They also conduct Vipassana meditation sessions at the caves every morning and evening

The city Aurangabad is historically rich the beautiful murals and architectures dated back to the ancient era attracts many tourists from across the country the all over the world. The ancient touch and untouched civilization by the modernization makes the place different from other cities. Take example of Aurangabad caves few kilometers away from the Bibi ka Maqbara, are carved... More

These caves are the least known and visited amongst the 3 sites around Aurangabad, being completely overshadowed by the much more famous Ajanta & Ellora caves. Yet I found these caves to be fascinating and worth a quick visit. The caves are located around 10 Km from Aurangabad city, about 70 feet above ground level on a hill. The rocks... More

These series of 10-12 caves are older than Ellora . However, they are not as extensive. 5 caves are on one side of a hill and the others are on another side. Cave 7 is the biggest and most worth visiting.
