Visit a premium display of Indian classical art dating back many centuries at Aurangabad Caves. Twelve caves divided into three groups make up the system, where sculptural carvings of various Buddhist religious deities date between the 2nd and 7th century CE. Many describe the seventh cave as the most fascinating of the lot: like a snake, this corridor adorned with sculptural embellishments encircles a central shrine. Carved Buddhist gods and goddesses fill the corridor, which features recesses at regular intervals. Go on your own, or inquire with a local tour operator to arrange transportation and a guided visit. Using our international travel planner, Aurangabad attractions like Aurangabad Caves can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Really nice place. A must visit place. You will feel peaceful. But only down side is you must visitwoth your friends dont visit alone. Sometimes bad guys can steal your money.
Awesome experience .. many people out side Aurangabad don't know this place. This is in marathwada University. ,(A trial of ellora caves.) At that edge.. very nice must visit. And you will find great atmosphere here and many birds.. must visit early in the morning..
