Tourist Attractions Jun 29, 2011
Aurangabad is in the state of Maharashtra in India From Mumbai which is capital of Maharashtra u cn go by road as well by air by road it is about six hours journey but by air it is just half hour flying time there u can stay at Youth hostel which is neat and clean ie if you are looking for cheaper accomadation other wise there are star hotels also from two to five star hotels You should avoid going there from june to October because of rainy season
After landing at air port in the morning you should hire a cab if you want to see both Ajanta and Ellora in one day
First you should go to Ajanta which is about one hours drive there you can see ancient caves they are about twenty two but about six are worth seeing and the best attraction is hindu temple carved out of one single mountain rock very important u must hire a guide before leaving from tourist dept office of Maharashtra tourisim
In the afternoon you can visit Ellora caves which are about two houra drive from Ajanta here you see ancient paintings on the walls as well as on the roof of the caves here some of the paintings are damaged due to rains and not looked after properlyalso these caves were discovered late only during British rule
In the evening you are back to Aurangabad next u cn proceed to Jaipur or Jodhpur and onward to Delhi or come back to Mumbai
