Aurangabad’s rich cultural heritage is most often recognized because of Ajanta and Ellora caves, however, this wonderful city also has several other ancient monuments to admire. The Ajanta caves are a series of 29 Buddhist cave temples, some dating back to the 2nd century BC. Encompassing the Theravada and Mahayana Buddhist traditions, the Ajanta caves are a treasure trove of Buddhist art at its most sublime. The Ellora caves were hewn between the 6th and 10th centuries, carved out of the vertical rock face of the Charanandri hills. (About the time that the Ajanta Caves were abandoned.) A visit to Bibi-ka-Makbara is interesting, as this mausoleum somewhat replicates the Taj. This ‘mini Taj’ is the mausoleum of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb’s queen. Also worth exploring is the Panchakki, a 17th century water-powered flour mill, an engineering marvel in its day. Nearby is the Tomb of Baba Shah Muzaffar, a Sufi Saint.
