Aurangabad, India

7 Dec

After a 600 Km long train ride from Ahmedabad, we arrived to Aurangabad without to many expectations about this town, and rightly so. Nevertheless, it is the best place to stay one or two nights if you want to see the caves of Ellora and Ajanta. For me, it was a nightmarish period, as I finally got the “Deli belly” thing. And I got it real bad. I was so weak that my wife had to push me up the stairs while we were exploring the caves and I had to stop and lie down every ten minutes. When one sees the shots taken, no one can guess the miserable state of the photographer.

The caves of Elora and Ajanta represent the apogee of rock carved religious architecture in India and are truly spectacular.
