Aurangabad’s wealth of fascinating historical, cultural, religious and ecological sites include the World Heritage Ellora and Ajanta Caves, Daulatabad fort, Bibi Ka Maqbara, Lonar crater and Ghrishneshwar Jyotirlinga among many others.
Aurangabad is easily accessible from the major cities of India by air, rail or road. It is directly connected by 4 daily flights and trains from Mumbai. It is also well connected to Delhi, Pune, Nasik, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Baroda and Surat.
Located about 30 Kilometers from Aurangabad, Ajanta & Ellora caves are known for the genius of their sculptors. Ellora first appears to the visitors as an irregular ridge of rock rising vertically from the ground. The cave complex is multicultural, as the caves here provide a mix of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain religions. Ellora represents some three hundred years of great experiments carried out by different faiths with their very different iconography and structural compulsions.
Ajanta caves closed on Monday & Ellora caves closed On Tuesday.
