Aurangabad Caves

Aurangabad Caves, situated at a distance of 5 km, nestled amidst the hills are 12 Buddhist caves probably dating back to 3 A.D. Of particular interest are the Tantric influences evident in the iconography and architectural designs of the caves. One is also treated to a panoramic view of the city as well as the imposing Maqbara from this point.

Buddhist temples can be found in Aurangabad Caves, which are near the city and are situated on a hill that runs from east to west in the Sihyachal hills. The Aurangabad caves have carvings of Mahayana and Hinayana stupas. The cave contains the most beautiful monolithic sculpture made of rock that will captivate you with its beauty.
