Murals in the Ajanta remains to this day the best examples of art of classic India. These caves were created by Buddhists; on the walls you can see pictures with stories of Buddha's life.

The day before setting out to visit the Ajanta caves, we visited these lesser known caves. It is worthwhile. Also, these caves show wonderful artistry. Be sure to climb to the summit to see an important Hinayana stupa. This is another Buddhist pilgrimage site as well as an important Indian historical monument.

There are two ways to reach the caves.....the brave climb up the steep hill via steps( very uneven) The faint hearted and seniors take a route by vehicle to the base of the caves after which you have to climb about 25 - 50 steps Worth a look

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.
