This was first place , when we visited the caves. Gud that they maintained the timings till 5:30 PM. Entire caves area was neat and clean. Thanks to Archeology dept for preserving the caves. The view of Bibi ka maqbara from Aurangabad caves is awesome. It s must visit place after rainy season.

If you have visited the Ellora caves you can very well skip the Aurangabad caves. The caves are divided in 2 section and with 1 km distance between them. Both the clusters are in the hill top and gotta climb around 100+ steps to get to the caves. The view of the Aurangabad city and the Babi Ka Maqbara (Replica... More

a really calm place to go early mornings of evenings, green surroundings make it refreshing ,though the caves r not v gud as compared to ellora but the walk up the staris in the beautifull surroundings is worth it. a small water fall in front of cave worth enjoying only when it is raining.

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.
