Jalgaon - Gateway to Ajanta and Ellora Caves


 Jalgaon - Gateway to Ajanta and Ellora Caves

Famous for Ajanta Cave, Jalgaon, is accessed by the tourists primarily to watch one of the astonishing creations of the World. The Ajanta Cave, about 59 km away towards the southern tip of the Jalgaon railway station, can be reached taking a bus from the railway station in 2 hours. Buses which run to Aurangabad from Jalgaon would not take you directly to Ajanta. So, it’s always suggested to avail a direct bus to Ajanta from Jalgaon railway station.

Jalgaon is a renowned business center of Maharashtra on NH-6. It is a part of the well-stretched-out grassland of Savannah forest. Jalgaon produces cottons and bananas in abundance.

However, Jalgaon, positioned at a height of 820 meters, has gained its prominence as a connecting railway station of Ajanta.

The best option is to hire an auto from the Jalgaon railway station to the bus stand. Then avail a bus from the bus stand to Ajanta and Ellora. The road to Ajanta will offer you plenty of things to cheer about. Pink color of the blooming Bougainvillea on this way would definitely please you.
