Good place for people who are interested in arts to see and enjoy the sclpultures of Ellora caves and Ajantha caves and enjoy the beauty of Mini TAj
Ellora and Ajanta are very close from Aurangabad. Must see the marvels of old Indian artists and architects.
After Pune which was quite western style in some parts Aurangabad is pure inida again. Very bad roads - and far from any western standards.
The caves Ellora and Ajanta are a nice visit as well as the little thaj mahal ;-)
Within the city Autos are expensive for example a distance of 3 kms may be Rs 50/- and some 8 kms 100/-.
Roads are bad.you need to be conservatively dressed.. area for tourists is ajanta and ellora caves and shirdi for the believers. Better to hire and ac taxi is advance for these tours. Good hotels are the taj and lemon tree.
Quite historic and can be seen interesting places such as Bibi ka Makwara, Fort and gates created by Aurangazeb.
there are other interesting places such as Allora cave and Ajanta - where one can spend good time. One can find good south indian and Rajasthani food in the city.
Aurangabad is not much to look at and was really dusty; however, there really are almost no tourist walking around the streets so you are free to explore without any touts bothering you.
Head down to the weekend street market for a good time as the masses shop along the lengthy route. Also, suggest the local bus to Ellora in which you will likely have a great conversation with the curious and friendly locals.
Aurangabad is good place to stay if wish to visit Ajanta,Ellora,Biwi ka Maqbara,panchakki and want to do some shopping.
