Earlier when I came across the name archeological splendour, I thought it
would be like other tours. But to my surprise after reaching the sights of
the Ajanta and Ellora caves I found them several times beautiful than my
expectations. I would suggest this tour to those who have interest in

Wow! Trip to Ajanta and Ellora caves was an amazing experience. Constructed
several centuries back, these caves still retain their old charm. From the
paintings of Ajanta caves I understood better about the life of Lord Buddha.
--- Thomas Odio (Thailand), visited in
On of my friend told me about the Archelogical splendour tour. As I am an
architect so very soon I planned a trip to Auranbad. Ajanta and Ellora caves
are really architectural masterpieces and deserve a visit. Trinetra tour
made my trip more memorable, I am really thankful to Trinetra.
