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.

These are 12 caves cut out into the rock (local name Aurangabad Leni). You can take an auto to visit Bibi ka Makbara, Panchakki and these caves. One word of advise. You will be very disappointed if you visit these caves after visiting Ajanta / Ellora. Please visit these caves first. These are Buddhist caves and worth a visit if... More

The quiet tells it own stories, the caves talk to you. You have to just look at those fruits of human strength, close your eyes and travel back in time......the experiance cant be described, as mystic as quiet telling stories

These caves are close to the city of Aurangabad and much easier to reach than the much more famous Ajanta and Ellora. While the Aurangabad Caves do have some charm and offer an interesting view of the city from their hilly perch, beyond a few structures and carvings there is nothing very special here which is not there in many...

These caves are in aurangabad city. If you haven't seen Ellora and ajntha or if you do not have time to visit Ajintha-Ellora then visit this place. Not much available in caves.

These caves are so close to Aurangabad but overshadowed by Ellora and Ajanta. There are two sections very close together with just a few caves in each. They are so peaceful and a good introduction before visiting the larger and more crowded caves. Here one can get a good look up close with no interference or noise.
