The caves are honestly incredible and witnessing these it is hard to imagine how much effort and herculean work must have been put into these. There are 30 caves which illustrate a number of admirable rock-cut sculptures and paintings which were erected more than 2 milleniums back, influenced by Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism. These caves are certainly an insight into the past, the whole complex looks like a huge collection of ancient craftsmanship and mythologies. Though some caves may not be well lit and some of the structures are somewhat damaged or the restoration is ongoing, these rock cut sculptures and paintings are a feast for eyes, the whole place is also an opportunity for composing lots of brilliant photographs. It took more than 2 hours to explore the whole area and clicking some pictures, we dropped the view point as it could have cost us another short trek and some more time. We came back surviving the hawkers annoyingly selling some small statues and other souvenirs, back on the MTDC we had lunch and departed in the bus to the entrance area where we strolled through the street shops ultimately leaving for Aurangabad.
Orating the whole experience I may say that, Ajanta caves are some of the finest masterpieces of Indian history and are definitely not to be missed. Apart from that the facilities which are good enough and MTDC serves decent food. There are lots of shops if you want to buy souvenirs or small ornamental items, but be careful and bargain enough if you want a good deal there.
