Ajanta - Ellora Factsheet

How to go – Overnight train from Mumbai to Aurangabad . Car from Aurangabad to Ajanta and Ellora

Where to stay – We stayed at Hotel Shree Maya in Aurangabad , recommended by LP. The MTDC resort was also recommended in quite a few blogs

When to go – Summer definitely to be avoided. March was a bit hot but not unbearable. Set aside two days as it gets tiring to cover in one day.

What to do – Ajanta , Ellora. Aurangabad has its own delights like Daulatabad Fort, Biwi ka Maqbara.

Handy hints – (a) Wear easily removable footwear since you have to remove them at most caves. Sneakers can be a pain (b) carry a torch to see the paintings better.
