Worth a visit

Although not as attractive and popular as the Ajanta and Ellore caves, this place also deserves a visit. Consist of 11 caves, 5 on the left and 6 on the right

I am still in awe about the beautiful caves of Aurangabad. They are in beautiful condition and are so amazing to see in person after reading about them on the internet. I would highly recommend a visit to the caves for a good dose of history. It's something you will never forget.

Located 10 min from Bibi ka maqbara, these caves are still intact but hardly visited for they are under shadows of Ellora/Ajanta. The climb to the caves is steep. No faciliites for food/water or wash room. You just stroll around and need not take a guide here. The caves are located as in V on either side of the intersection... More

The Kailash (IAST: Kailāśa) or Kailasanatha temple (Kailāsanātha) is one of the largest rock-cut ancient Hindu temples located in Ellora, Maharashtra, India. A megalith carved out of one single rock, it is considered one of the most remarkable cave temples in India because of its size, architecture and sculptural treatment.

Ok not well organized. No proper arrangement. Visit enroute to Ellora or at Aurangabad. Long walks & no proper arrangement, poorly managed.
