Overall Guide : Among the best places to visit in Aurangabad, the Grishneshwar Temple is probably the most important one. Grishneshwar Temple is situated in the Verul village and is 11 kilometers from Daulatabad, which is near Aurangabad. It is one of the twelve... more Jyotirlingas (prominent temples) of Lord Shiva. Grishneshwar is also called as Ghushmeswara or Kusumeshwara. The temple is built from spotted red sandstone. There are sculptures of several Indian gods like Ganesh, Vishnu, Bhrama, Shiva and Parvati. Ajanta caves are a World Heritage site. These are cut on the rocky sides of a crescent-shaped gorge. Near the head, there is a waterfall that flows above the mountain rim. This waterfall flows over seven steps into a pool called as the Saptakund. The Ajanta caves date back to the 2nd century B.C. Inside the mountain, the Buddhist chaitya-vihara prayer and monastery caves can be seen. There are many murals that portray the life in ancient India. Ellora caves are also a World heritage Site. These were constructed between the fifth and eighth centuries A.D. There is a monolithic Kailasa temple, which is an architectural marvel. There is a Buddhist Vishvakarma chaitya and vihara. The Jain cave is known for the impressive Yakshi statue and paintings on the ceiling. The Daulatabad Fort has several monuments like the Chini Mahal (Chinese Palace), the Elephant Tank, the Chand Minar and the Bharat Mata Mandir. The fort was the capital of the Delhi sultanate under Tughlaq.
