Pitalkhora Buddhist Caves· Chandikawadi· Maharashtra+ 2 More
Exploring new places is a need for passionate travellers. Aurangabad region is the land of caves. The world’s greatest historical monuments are situated around here. Therefore we provide tours to places which are not very popular or touristic but visiting them is a unique experience. Pitalkhora Cave in considered to be the oldest cave complex that is started before Ajanta and Ellora. It is located on an ancient trade route. Pitalkhora caves are now part of reserved forests. One has to walk for a half-hour to reach the caves. Here caves are in an unfinished stage or some caves are collapsed due to poor rock quality. But the carving of caves is unique and it is an attempt towards a revolution in architecture of cave engineering. There are few places in the cave where one can find ancient paintings that date back to the 1st century. The paintings are very similar to the Ajanta Caves.
