Really excellent and special place to visit - BUT when you visit, take care to do it in a right time - not in a weekend mid-day, like we did, because at that time, place is full of people. Indian people have to pay only 5 rupees tickets, and foreigners 100 rupees... this means, there's a lot of Indians without real interest for this place, just running around with mobile phone cameras and posing with the sculptures - and staring at you or asking your name or country if you look like a foreigner.
Area's canteen offers basic Indian food, but the quality is not so good (very salty). Same place will keep your lockages over your visiting time in caves, which is a good deal (20 rs one bag).
