Place is close to Aurangabad. By cutting rock from top to bottom and from front to back caves with different idols are carved. You can also visit Grishneshwar, Mhaismal, and Bhadra Maroti, Daulatabad Fort.

How easy it is to visit Ellora Caves from Shirdi? We will be in Shirdi for 2 days and want to keep one day for visiting Ellora Caves. How easy will it be to get cabs and does it make sense to travel to this attraction with a 3 year old kid keeping in mind long walks, sun and climbing?
