Ellora is 29 kms from Aurangabad and you need to devote atleast 5 to 6 hours to really do justice to the place. En-route you will pass Daulatabad fort and Khuldabad also worth a stopover.

The guided tour from Aurangabad packs in few sights in Aurangabad city and gives a mere 2 hours to Ellora where you are shown just 4 important caves- certainly not enough to do justice to these magnificent structures. We decided to explore Ellora on our own and were so fascinated by most of the caves and especially the magnitude of the Kailash temple (cave 16) that we spent over an hour at just this cave clicking nearly every detail!
