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

Whatever I heard about the Caves in Books and Newspaper, it was much more attractive than that. Good Place to understand History.

one can find some of the beautiful art work here.. super sculptors and bad quality of rock which is why you dnt see the same effect like they have in ellora or ajanta.. bt still its worth watching if you are a cave lover.

The spot looks to be taken good care of by authorities, but still need special attention from heritage point of view pretty much like celebrated Ajintha Ellora caves. Should be a treat for eyes in rainy days. Not recommended... More
