It is just mind boggling to imagine how they carved out so much of hard rock to make such detailed sculptures and carvings some even two floors high. The columns, the beams, the play of light and shadow, the windows provided. The chaitya halls, the dorm kind of rooms with viharas, the prayer rooms. All distinguished and constructed according to their use. You need to go there to feel the awe I felt when I looked at it.
How time flew I don't know but by the time we finished walking to all the caves it was almost dark. As we were relying on public transport we rushed out to the main road. Luckily for us, we were not the only ones and around 8 other people were also waiting for a bus.
It took almost 20 - 30 minutes for a bus to arrive by which it was completely dark. You need to have patience if you are travelling without much money and relying on public transport. We got back to our room by 8 that night. And were soon fast asleep.
