These caves are not as popular as the ajanta or ellora caves. There are 6 caves in total and 2-3 of them have excellent carvings in them. Well worth a visit as its quite close to Aurangabad(about 5km from Bibi Ka Maqbara)

some people do avoid since Ajanta and Ellora caves are best places to visit nearby but I feel this is also nice place to visit and spend some time

Although the caves are good and worthwhile a visit and near to bibi ka makbara. I would recommend that please do not go here of you intend to visit ajanta or ellora as they are nearly the same.

The caves are just outside Aurangabad and accessed after climbing over a 100 steep steps. The temples are not as impressive as those at Ellora but it is unique in that it is high in the hills. From these caves you get a panoramic view of Aurangabad

When I say ancient I really mean it is ancient. Dating back more than a 1000 years this place was used by monks to meditate and when you visit it you'd understand it very well why.

The Aurangabad Caves are reached by climbing over a 100 steep steps. Not a patchonEllora or Ajanta Caves. It does give one a view of Aurangabad thoughtheview is not great.

As compared to ajanta caves this aurangabad caves are small but really nice one.thinking of that old time kings,emperour and administrators are long sighted,safely guarding of history and past time in the stone by carving in the caves forms.during your aurangabad tour, do visit this nice caves..
