    The Ellora Caves are amazing. They’re dated to 600 AD and when you think about how the site was carved out of solid rock, it boggles the mind.

    its a very serene Hindu deity Temple.
    expect crowd most of the time.
    management has made arrangements for smooth darshan.
    Here you can touch the Jyothirling

    you cannot take phones inside the temple so better keep it in your vehicle.
    there is a shoe stand just outside the temple. its very nominal.

    Visit this place after sun set. It's far more beautiful when the lights are switched on rather than in the daylight. Understand it's open till 8:30pm.
    If you are driving to this place there is parking available nearby.

    These beautiful rock-cut Buddhist temple caves are located just a few kilometres from Aurangabad City. One needs to climb up the hill to visit the caves.

    After entering for ellora caves, first you encounter cave No.16 which is in middle of 34 caves.On the left side of this cave are Jainism caves. But these caves are at long distance. So take an E-Rickshaw to visit the jain temples at ellora. The e-rickshaw stand is just near the entry gate. The rickshaw will drop you at 1 cave and left with other tourists. You take your own time visiting and came back with another e rickshaw. The same thing happen in all these caves. So keep your e-rickshaw ticket with you every time. Don’t dare to go these caves by walk.

    its a unique Hanumanji temple, where you see the idol in lying position.
    most of the place either Hanumanji is facing or half faced, but here you can see the idol in sleeping position.
    legend says"One day Hanumanji descended in the place, listening to the devotional songs sung in praise of Rama by King Bhadrasena. Hanumanji was mesmerized and without his knowledge took a reclining posture – called 'Bhava-samadhi'.

    if you are a religious person its a good visit for sure.

    It is a good place to hang out if you have kids. The zoo has a good variety of animals that includes snakes, crocodile, fox, porcupine, rabbits, birds and many more. The white tiger was a major centre of attraction. At the entrance of the zoo, there is a small fountain and park which makes the kids happy

    Four Star is only the Collection of the various things but this Place demands Maintenance & attention. Staff seems to be Bored and Not Interested at all. Single thing which they do is check the Ticket and show you the way forwards.

    Collection is really good here one if interested can spend good time here.

    A good visit from Collection Perspective

    These caves are group of buddhist caves that are carved inside a valley.This place is around 12 km from kannad and we can get a ST bus till Ambagaon and we need to walk for 4km from Ambagaon to reach this place.We need to pay 30rs as entry fees at the entrance and need to walk for 1km to reach the valley.There is a small water stream infront of these caves and most of the caves are destroyed partially and some of them are having small budda stupas
