The Ajanta Caves when simply put is just a complex of 30 rock-cut Buddhist caves. Part of these fascinating monuments dates back to 2nd century BCE. While the other, much more richly decorated, part of caves were added to the original group during the Gupta period in 5th century CE. The caves are situated in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra state of India. Most of the explorers reach this World Heritage site from Aurangabad which is considered to be the base for exploring Ajanta and Ellora cave complexes.
Although, most of the caves looks similar, they are located in amazing and calm place. If you make time to wander around the area, you will most definitely enjoy your time here. The biggest mistake here is to hurry through the place and miss the tinny little details!
Best of luck planning your holidays in India!
