Ajanta

4.7
Caves
World-famous for its spellbinding prayer halls and cave temples carved into a horseshoe-shaped rock face, Ajanta lies in a mountainous region of a remote river valley. A listed World Heritage Site, these secluded caves had been long abandoned by the Buddhist monks who created them around the 2nd century BCE, before they were uncovered almost 1,500 years later by a British officer in a tiger hunt. Ajanta holidays draw a growing number of visitors interested in discovering some of the finest and oldest Buddhist art. A trip to Ajanta reveals an amazing art gallery of architecture, sculptures, and wall paintings that shocked Victorian sensibilities at the time they were rediscovered. Customize your holiday with our India route planner to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Ajanta

Though a popular tourist destination often crowded at holiday times, Ajanta offers a surprisingly limited number of sleeping options close to the caves that include a handful of hotels and homestays. A wider range of lodgings can be found at the town of Fardapur, just 10 km (6 mi) away from Ajantha village.
