Efforts are on to preserve it and in coming times , authorities plan to shut some caves temporarily to reduce the negative effect of influx of tourists. If you go to the view-point opposite to Ajanta caves, you will realize how this cave remain hidden for... More

We went from Mumbai through Jalgaon -Aurangabad-Mumbai route. An wonderful UNESCO site of great Indian heritage. Although many caves look similar, actually there are lot of difference and each tell you separate story. After the last cave, the garden is awesome, after which a backside outing is there, where you can meet many locals selling petty things. The bus ride... More

It was a great place. Old Buddhist temples were magnificent to see. Huge scale, enough space. The temples were cut out of rocks from mountain. Anyone can pick a taxi and go there , we went there through a minibus.

This wonderful,place must come in seven wonders of the world . The sculpture and art work can not be done by todays artists. It requires dedication, vision and hard-work of many generations. It seems only god can do such work. A must see to feel proud to be india

Simply awesome. Once one has reached the top of the hill, and the entire extent of the caves are revealed, the view is one that remains for a lifetime. Quite humbling to note that even two thousand years ago the level of artistry achieved by the people then is unsurpassed even now! Truly a world heritage site!

A spectacular display in religious artwork through sculpture and carving. the caves are hand-wrought and really a remarkable feat of human ingenuity for the sake of realizing the true nature of being.
