Don't expect anything nearly as impressive as the Elloran or Ajantan sites and by setting your expectations way lower, you won't be disappointed. I walked to the caves from... More

Its offside of the main road so a faced little problem in locating it. After reaching, found it to be a nice place to see. Best time may be in July, during rainy season.

This ancient construction is amazing one and one must understand the knowledge of the people who lived in those period. We the present day people think we are super computers, to understand that we lack knowledge , we must visit this kind of construction then understand what kind of materials they used to get such kind of fine finishing.

We have been there twice with family. Drove down from Hyderabad and Pune once. A must see collection of ancient caves and some really good/old sculpture. Plan a full day visit when the weather is cool/cloudy so that once doesn't get drained out from walking across the caves in the sun.

Standing inside the Kailash Cave on 6th Dec 2014, I remembered the words of French novelist Marcel Proust who once quoted “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” So true are the words. Standing on the largest monolithic structure on Earth was an experience in itself. The carving on the rocks,... More
