    Ajanta Caves
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
    Early Morning Arrive Aurangabad either by overnight train from Mumbai or by early morning flight, which lands around 6:15 Am, our chauffeur will meet you at the Airport/Railway Station and start your journey to visit Ajanta caves which take 2 hours. Reach Ajanta caves parking area and you will have to travel by shuttle bus from parking area to Ajanta caves entrance point, where you can buy entrance tickets. Discover Ajanta caves for couple of hours, then come back to the parking area by same shuttle bus, then we move towards Ellora caves and the journey takes another couple of hour. After reaching Ellora caves , explore Ellora caves for 2-3 hours. The incredible Kailasa Temple (also known as the Kailash Temple), which forms Cave 16 at Ellora, is undoubtedly the most famous attraction. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and his sacred abode at Mount Kailash. Its immense size covers twice the area of the Pantheon in Athens, and is one and a half times as high! The life-size elephant sculptures are a highlight.The most incomprehensible thing about the Ajanta and Ellora caves is that they were crafted by hand, with only a hammer and chisel. There are various cave complexes in India, but these are definitely the most spectacular. Now head to Aurangabad, you will reach by 6 Pm you will be in the city, then our driver will drop you at the Airport or Railway station or if you are going to stay in Aurangabad for the night then our driver will drop you at Hotel.

The visit to Ajanta and Ellora caves is always a fantastic experience. Currently the road to the caves is under repair and widening and it is quite tiring to travel. But once you reach there, it is a great experience. It is one of the most astounding monuments by any world standards, considering that it is about 2000 years old and has withstood the onslaught of nature and man! A visit to Ajanta and Ellora cannot be described in words, but experienced with reverence.

Rock cut temples and Paintings inside Ajanta caves. Kailasa temple is a glory of stone architecture, it is said that whole temple was created from top to bottom by carving out a whole rock! Also stuuned tosee the ancient paintings in ajanta caves, drawn with natural colours and most of them in good shape till date.

An ancient engineering marvel impossible to explain in words....I was simply in an alien world with gods and angles lurking behind deep caves.....kailasa temple at ellora is simply unbelievable and will force you to ponder how much do we really know about the human capabilities

Rock cut Buddhist caves remains an engineering mystery. What on earth made that possible.
