There are two caves : Ajanta and Ellora. Both are almost 90% same. Ajanta is 106 KM From auranagbad while Ellora is only 32 KM far. So visit only Ellora. Ellora itself have around 40 caves but only one cave is sufficient to visit. All are same.

These caves and sculptures are marvellous, equal to the ones at Ajanta and Ellora, yet not well known nor recognized as the world heritage. Definitely worth a visit. Nice views of Aurangabad from here.

well worth the trip out of our way. amazing human feat of engineering to carve huge statues into caves and the side of cliffs. Amazing. There were a lot of local families and school children around when we visited which did rather spoil the atmosphere which could otherwise have been more atmospheric. Perhaps try to avoid weekends and local holidays.

These are the caves situated at outside of the Aurangabad city. We can see the beautiful view of Aurangabad city view and Bibika maqbara. It is near to Bibika Maqbara. The carvings are good inside caves.
