"Ellora Caves" Aurangabad Things to Do Tip by BluBluBlu

Aurangabad Things to Do: 67 reviews and 215 photos


These are one of the highlights of India...absolutely wonderful. Buses run about every half an hour from Aurangabad. All of the caves are carved out of the rocky escarpment...from the top downwards...an amazing achievement...especially in the 6th century AD! Some of the caves are Buddhist...some Hindu...and some Jain...but the best of the best is the Kailash Temple...you just cannot believe it was carved out of solid rock...as the workmanship is unbelievable!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
