Aurangabad Caves, Aurangabad

(3.6/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We viewed the Aurangabad Caves after viewing the Ajanta and Ellora caves but in all honesty it did not make its beauty any less. They are more compact and fewer in number (only 10) than the other ones...  more »
  • Are speaking of Aurangabad, Ellora and Ajanta caves tourist base in the caves near the town of Deccan in also. Scale is there lot of pales in comparison to the reasonably impressive.

  • Lesser known caves and less beautiful than those of Ellora and Aja ta. Tickets cost 200rupie for foreigners. The caves are divided into two groups: those on the right, Hinduism where Ganesh is the masters and those on the left who are Buddhist. Without doubt the most beautiful and the most visited is the number 7 (Hindu). All for nothing held up well, dirty.
