Travel Tips for Aurangabad

Ajanta Cave 1-Another Fresco

by Paul2001

This is another of the wonderful frescos in the first cave at Ajanta. This cave was actually very crowded during my visit with loads of tourist being guided through the cave complex. The caves are actually a very popular bus tour destination.

Dress Code

by lynnehamman

When visiting any part of India, women should be aware of the fact that modesty is the key.
This means.........cover your legs especially, and do not show bare stomach. Short sleeved T-shirts are acceptable, though. Women can carry a shawl for covering up when needed.
This applies even more when visiting places of worship, such as temples & mosques, where the head should also be covered. Removal of shoes is necessary, and in Jain temples, no articles of leather, including shoes,wallets & bags are allowed. Menstruating women are requested not to enter a Jain temple,as this is considered to be unclean. This rule/request applies also to Hindu temples, wherever possible.There are usually places outside the temples where shoes can safely be left..

Khuldabad

by Willettsworld

Khuldabad is a small town located about 3km south of the Ellora Caves, which, in turn, are about 30km northwest of Aurangabad. It's famous for where the tomb of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb is located in the mosque of Shaikh Burhan ud-din Gharib Chisti. Everything is very low-key which, from all accounts, is what he wanted. The mosque is also famous for containing two of Prophet Muhammad's whiskers.

Bibi-Ka-Maqbara

by Willettsworld

The Bibi-Ka-Maqbara, Aurangabad's principal landmark attraction, is a beautiful mausoleum of Dilras Banu Begum, the wife of the Mughal Emperor Aurangazeb (1658-1707 A.D.). This mausoleum is believed to be constructed by Prince Azam Shah in memory of his mother between 1651 and 1661. An inscription found on the main entrance door mentions that it was designed and erected by Ata-ullah, an architect and Hanspat Rai, an engineer respectively. The marble for this mausoleum was brought from mines near Jaipur.

The mausoleum draws its inspiration from the world famous Taj Mahal of Agra (constructed between 1631 and 1648) and hence it is known as the "Taj of Deccan". The mausoleum was intended to rival the Taj Mahal, but, the decline in architecture and proportions of the structure resulted in it being a poor copy of the latter and hence it has the nickname 'poor man’s Taj'. I can see why it's so-called as I had visited the Taj Mahal a couple of months previous to my visit here, but few buildings in the world can compete with that!

Feed the Monkeys at Ellora Caves

by Donna_in_India

I was hoping to see monkeys at the caves and I was not disappointed. In between the main gate and the parking lot were a couple of dozen monkeys hanging around. What a funny bunch they were - climbing on the cars, sitting by the buses as if waiting to board!

They were used to being fed by humans and were not aggressive towards them, only occasionally to each other when trying to get food. Sandy bought a bunch of bananas and started feeding them. One monkey enthusiastically jumped off the ground to take the banana out of Sandy’s hand. He bought another bunch of bananas and then another feeding as many monkeys as he could. They really were very cute!
