One has to walk up the hill-side to see these caves but the walk is worth it. In any case the steps are not very steep as can be seen in these photographs. This photo was taken from near the top of the hill, outside the cave temples.
This is a picture of the exterior of the caves with its elaborately carved pilars and some broken statues in the front. A lot of erosion has taken place and one wonders whether any restoration work is planned.
A view of the inside of the of the corridors inside the Aurangabad caves. A sculpture of Buddha with some other unknown figures next to him is visible at the end of the corridor. All the carvings are elaborate and one can only imagine the beauty of these caves all those centuries ago! Just the thought takes one's breath away.

A deity can be seen inside the inner sanctum of the caves. Has to be Buddha.
