Even though I liked Ellora caves better, I enjoyed a lot this site. It is about 2 hours from Aurangabad so it is good to plan your trip. The site itself is an explendor. The caves are well conserved if you consider the age. The place is also well kept and organized. I took a guide to walk around and... More

When planning my trip to India I was not sure if it was worthy to go to Ajanta. Guess what... it is. Ajanta caves is a must in your trip.

Beautifully crafted paintings and nice to see the Indian art of the ancient time. Paintings are truly marvelous(Unfortunately most of the paintings are damaged due to water leakage etc.). Concept of 3D paintings was from the ancient times and it gives the "Beyond Imagination Power of artist". Also color combination, history of kings and Buddha's are crafted beautifully. Physically challenges... More

These caves are amazing considering their age, design and construction. Most buildings have been dug out, hence the term caves, but they are not caves. One Hindu temple than has been constructed in the reverse. It has been cut out of the volcanic rock as a free standing temple. Wonderful craftsmanship.
