Ajanta Caves Oct 26, 2015
To Ajanta you can go by frequent bus from the central bus station, 2.5 hours for 120 Rupies, get off at the Ajanta Cave T junction, you have to pay there a 10 Rupies "amenities" fee, go throu the shopping plaza and into the shuttle bus 20 / 15 Rupies with / without AC, last shuttle bus back at 5 pm, for the 4 km to the entrance / ticket office.

For going back you can wait at the T junction, buses get a bit less frequent in the late afternoon.

There is also a tour bus from the MTDC Holiday Resort, East Station Road, for 670 Rupies at 7.30 am, if the office in the hotel is closed you can buy the ticket in the bus

Although these caves were completed during the second to the seventh centuries, they were only rediscovered during the nineteenth century. During the British raj, an officer decided to take an wander in this area during his hunting party, and rediscovered the caves through the undergrowth. The discovery was very valuable as UNESCO have declared the caves as a World Heritage Site. The caves are littered with Buddhist paintings and scenes of the ruling kings at the time. Although the paintings are eroding away, it is still possible to see many beautiful scenes. I thought this was a really amazing site to visit, and is a decent half-day trip.
