Full description
The day begins with hotel pickup at 8:00 AM. Travel in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle approximately 2.5-3 hours to Ajanta Caves, an ancient rock-cut Buddhist monument used as a retreat for Buddhist Monks. Admire the paintings and rock-cut sculptures before enjoying free time for lunch in the area.   Continuing on, head 15 km West of Aurangabad to the Ellora Caves, a huge complex of over 100 caves known for their mix of Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist sites. Hand-carved into Basalt cliffs, these caves were built close to one another and illustrate the religious harmony that existed in ancient India. After a day full of sightseeing, return to Aurangabad where the driver will drop guests off at their hotels.
