Aurangabad Caves, Aurangabad

#2 of 9 in Parks in Aurangabad
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.
