We didn’t know that there were cave temples at Aurangabad. It is only when we reached Ajanta that a fellow visitor told us about the twelve artificial rock-cut Buddhist shrines located on a hill near Aurangabad. “Sculptural carvings of Aurangabad Caves reached are among the highest achievements of Indian classical art and can be compared to the best paintings of Ajanta,” according to Wikipedia.
Small in number, these caves have been totally overshadowed by their more famous cousins in Ajanta and Ellora. A dedicated trip to explore these temples in more detail is certainly necessary and probably will be undertaken in winter.
