Fantastic craftsmanship

The caves are two hours away from Aurangabad by road. They’re cut into a cliff face and overlook a stream. The 30 caves can be accessed via a sunny pathway along the cliff. The caves have lovely murals and paintings, most depicting Buddhist philosophy and culture. The grandest cave is No.26 which has a large carved sculpture of a reclining Buddha, representing his last moments before he died. The well-lit cave is in the shape of a large hall with grand imposing pillars lining both sides. There is a platform on the other side of the gorge from where you can view the entire horse-shaped cliff face. Make sure you go there, though the path is not very easy to negotiate.

Ajanta caves are world heritage site located in aurangabad. The amazing grand architecture of ajanta caves makes it world heritage site. There are more than 30 caves available to see which are more than 1000 years old. The wall of caves are still strong. Its difficult to understand that how people can build this cave before 1000 years. It is most recommended place to visit..

This is a world heritage site in india located in aurangabad. There are so many caves to see and explore. Highly recommended to visit this place. You can go easily by taxi or bus. This cave is made up of stong stones which are still too hard like iron. Found less maintenance.

It was a surprising event to see the beautiful paintings painted inside the cave. The paintings are so well painted that it may capture anyone's attention and tempt him to visit that place again. Going through the cave with my siblings talking and laughing was a great fun and each and every tourist will enjoy that place without any boredom.

The Ajanta caves are just spectacular. The carvings are wonderful. The beautiful paintings and the ceilings depict how good our ancient civilizations were in arts. Hadn't read much much about this place so didn't expect much but later felt it was worth visiting. It is a great tourist attraction with lot of visitors. It is a must visit place. You will be mesmerised by the art and architecture. The place is just simply amazing.

I went to Ajanta Caves on my way to Mumbai.The caves were amazing.There were 28 caves in total.The caves have different type of architecture and the design of the pillars were superior than Ellora caves.The Guides made us know about all these.There was a cave in which we could experience different musical instruments by tapping rocks.It was a charming experience.We went shopping too.We bought Small Statues of Buddha.It was a good experience.

The Ajanta Caves are rock-cut cave monuments dating from the 2th century BC. The magnificent Ajanta caves were abandoned around 650 AD and forgotten until 1819, when a British hunting party stumbled upon them. Their isolation contributed to the fine state of preservation in which some of their paintings remain to this day. The well preserved murals depict everything from battlefields to sailing ships, city streets and teeming animal-filled forests to snow-capped mountains. The city of Aurangabad is the gateway to the Ajanta Caves as well as the equally spectacular Ellora Caves.

Start off early and budget a full day if you are interested in history and archaeology (or at least half a day even if you are not!) for Ajanta caves. Visiting these ancient temples and monuments is a life-changing experience and this is as impressive as visiting Angkor Wat or Taj Mahal for the first time. The river valley below is equally beautiful and the horse-shoe shaped cave complex is full of rock carved marvels that will make yo go "Oh my god !". You should carry a torch and water, since it is dark inside some of the caves and you have to walk a lot for enjoying these caves. It is best to hire a guide to understand the intricate historical and mythological perspectives of these caves. If you had to choose between Ajanta and Ellora, choose Ajanta.
