I first visited Aurangabad, a city about 400km east of Mumbai, several years ago when I worked for Foster’s Group, who owned a brewery there. As I was there for work I didn’t have enough time to visit the nearby Ajanta and Ellora Caves, and they have always been a site I have wanted to visit. So when a friend offered me the opportunity to go to Aurangabad for a weekend, I jumped at the chance.
It was so nice to actually leave Mumbai and have a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the big smoke. The caves were certainly worth the visit, with some over 2000 years old, it never ceases to amaze me how these wonders were created and how they have survived all these years. Here’s a few of my favourite snaps:

I personally rate the Ajanta Ellora caves higher on the ‘wonders of the world’ ratings….They’re far more amazing than the Taj Mahal
