The immortal personages - Bodhisattva, Avaloktteswara and Padmapani depicted there, throw a flood of light on the Buddhist way of life and their missionary activities. The popular painting of a damgel lost in her make up found in cave No. 18 decidedly is the biggest draw, followed by woman on a swing adoring the cave no.2.

'These world famous caves resembling a horse-shoe in from are excavated in a rocky perpendicular wall of about 250 feet high. They are located at a distance of 100 KM from Aurangabad, the once capital city of Aurangazeb, the Mughal emperor, and was named after him. It also contains many monuments, like the Bibika Maqbara, a prototype of Tajmahal built in memory of emperors wife and Panchakki - a water mill, where water was harnessed to turn large grinding stone, etc. With Aurangabad as base visitors conveniently make trips to Ajanta and Ellora along with Daulatabad, the capital of Tughluk lying on the way to Ellora.
