Stop At: Ajanta Caves Road, Ajanta 431001 India
After breakfast leave for Ajanta caves. It is at a distance of 100 KM/ 65 miles and takes approximately 3 - 4 hours drive from Aurangabad.

The Ajanta Caves are 30 (approximately) rock-cut Buddhist cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BCE to about 480 CE. The caves include paintings and rock-cut sculptures described as among the finest surviving examples of ancient Indian art, particularly expressive paintings that present emotion through gesture, pose and form.

The caves were built in two phases, the first phase starting around the 2nd century BCE, while the second phase was built around 400–650 CE. The site is a protected monument in the care of the Archaeological Survey of India, and since 1983, the Ajanta Caves have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Ajanta Caves constitute ancient monasteries and worship-halls of different Buddhist traditions carved into a 75-metre (246 ft) wall of rock. The caves also present paintings depicting the past lives and rebirths of the Buddha, pictorial tales from Aryasura's Jatakamala, and rock-cut sculptures of Buddhist deities.

Daulatabad Fort is an ancient fortification that rises formidably from the midst of verdant greenery. This architectural marvel is believed to have been built in the 12th century. It is also known as Devgiri fort. Its design makes it one of the most powerful fortresses of the medieval period. It is built on a 200 metres high conical hill, which provides this grand fortress with a strategic position, architectural beauty and protection from the enemies. Another unique aspect of the mighty Devgiri Fort is its engineering genius, which not only provided an impregnable defence against enemy forces but also managed irreplaceable resources of water quite well.
