Itinerary

Welcome at Aurangabad and transfer to hotel; rest of the day at your leisure.

Explore the astounding Ajanta Caves; dating back to 200 BC these Buddhist Caves, set in the hillside, depict the life and teachings of The Buddha from the Mahayana Period through perfect sculptures and paintings. While ancient sculptures abound in India, eloquent paintings such as these are rare and treasured.

Our first visit for the day will be to the Ellora Cave Temple Complex; older than the Ajanta caves, nevertheless breathtakingly beautiful with its rock temples carved out of a vast cave structure, the Ellora caves is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Let your camera shutter away at this amalgamation of Buddhist, Jain and Hindu art, with the highlight being Cave 16 – the Kailasha Temple. Later explore Aurangabad with a visit to the Bibi-ka-Maqbara, Panchakki and the Aurangabad Caves.
