Tour Details

Overview

This private tour will take you to visit Ajanta's wondrous cave temples, a World Heritage site, that cut the rocks into a dramatic crescent-shaped gorge. On the top the gorge, there is a beautiful waterfall that drops over the mountain rim in a series of seven steps to a pool below. It is dated back to the 2nd century B.C. covering a span of 800 years and during the period professional artists helped Buddhist monks to create magnificent murals narrating the story of Buddha in his cycle of incarnations. The caves are etched and painted with vegetable and mineral dyes and the paintings have languorous beauty and magical eloquence.

  • Ajanta is truly amazing and our guide gave us an excellent tour. The caves were about two hours from our hotel. Our guide gave us information about the area we were passing through. We stopped on our way back to Aurangabad for a tasty lunch that was included in the price of the tour. We stopped in Aurangabad at a textile factory on our way back to see the work that has made Aurangabad famous. Ajanta is not to be missed.

  • The Ajanta caves are amazing, however, remember to take plenty of water as temperatures can get quite hot. Guide very informative and knowledgeable about all the caves. Very last cave the most memorable and picturesque!

  • Ajanta Caves is an awesome place. Our guide Ayaz was well-informed, though we thought he gave too much information for us to take in. Good late breakfast and lunch at an outdoor restaurant was good.
