#XploreBharat – Magnificent Ajanta
Ajanta and Ellora are two distinct places near each other, situated on the outskirts of Aurangabad district in Maharashtra. Ajanta is located at a distance of 100 km and Ellora at 30 km from Aurangabad.
One can travel by train to Aurangabad railway station and take a bus or cab to reach the caves. It takes around 9 hrs to reach Ajanta from Mumbai if you travel by road. We decided to travel by road as our group was huge and we had many other spots to cover on this trip after Ajanta & Ellora. We began our journey in the wee hours of the day to reach the designated place on time. The journey was long but as the roads were smooth, we didn’t feel the pinch of covering such a long distance at one go.
