Thanks to Aurangabad for giving the Indians two glorified World Heritage Sites of Ajanta and Ellora. These two culturally awakened sites have given the Indians a reason to feel pride upon. Ajanta and Ellora are historically so rich that tourists leave no stone unturned in reaching and enjoying it to the fullest. This city of Aurangabad was built by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. The city has witnessed the arrival and departure of disparate dynasties that has made this place a centre of learning and culture.

Aurangabad lies along the right bank of the Kham river, surrounded by the Satmala Hills in Maharashtra. The Buddhist caves of Ajanta and rock-cut temples of Ellora are the exemplary examples of India's crowning past. Sightseeing
Ajanta Caves - About 100 kms from Aurangabad lies the 30 rock cut caves of Ajanta that are awe inspiring for umpteen inbound and outbound tourists. The caves of Ajanta have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These 30 rock cut caves of Ajanta are cut from the volcanic lava of the Deccan in the forest ravines of the Sahyadri Hills. The natural gallery of the caves houses India's most sophisticated ancient paintings or frescoes of many colours.

Ellora Caves - There are a number of rock cut cave temples at Ellora whose constructions date back to 5th and 8th centuries AD. These temple depict the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain faiths. The site of Ellora has also been given the honour of UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Panchakki - The word Panchakki means 'Water Wheel'. It is one of the major attractions of Aurangabad. Panchakki is considered to an engineering feat. It is driven by water that is brought through earthen pipes from the river 6 km away. Nearby is the shrine of a saint, Baba Shah Muzaffar, who was spiritual guide to Aurangzeb.

Bibi Ka Maqbara - This tomb has been made in the memory of Aurangzeb's wife Begum Rabia-ud-Durani. It bears a little resemblance of the Taj Mahal and thus the tiltle of 'Poor Man's Taj Mahal has been conferred upon it. The monument showcases a perfect example of Persian architecture. The monument has a charm of its own and draws tourists from worldwide.

Bibi Ka MaqbaraHimroo Factory - Hand -woven Himroo shawls from cotton, silk and silver threads are all the products produced from the traditional Himroo factory. This art, known as Kam Khab, is considered to be a cheaper alternative to the prized brocades of silk and gold thread.
