This was as or more amazing than the Ajanta caves, with so much to get around and so much to see it really is an sight. We started from the earlier Buddhist caves and worked our way up through to the Jain sites but the main entrance leads you to cave 16 the most impressive of the caves, it was well worth going through the caves in order as it ca\\gave a real sense for the progression and merge of Buddhism and Hinduism.
Getting here is really easy (from Aurangabad) you can get...
(a) Coach Tour - This tour stops at a number of attractions during the day but I've been told that the amount of stops it makes really leaves you pressed for time at Ellora.
(b) Private Car - We got offered a private car for the entire day with stops around Ellora for 1000 R
(c) Public Bus - This is the budget back packer option at 54 R return journey. Buses leave regularly from the MRSTC bus station in Aurangabad and you can catch a return bus back from the road opposite the entrance to Ellora, just walk a small distance down and wave one (they're red).
Hope this helps as the price of the caves dropped a heavy weight on my budget and the public bus option saved me a fortune.
