Detailed Itinerary

Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra and India's most dynamic, cosmopolitan and crowded city. The city’s name was officially changed from Bombay to Mumbai in 1995. A city of the past, present and future mixed into one, Mumbai is an island connected to the mainland by bridges. The country's financial center and its busiest port, Mumbai is also home to the world's biggest cinema industry.

Enjoy a full day touring of Mumbai and its surroundings, starting with a visit to the Elephanta Caves, housing rock cut temples, thought to have been created between 450 and 750AD.

Come back city and after lunch visit Gateway of India, Mumbai's principle landmark. This arch of yellow basalt was erected on the waterfront in 1924 to commemorate King George V's visit to Mumbai in 1911. Drive pass the Secretariat of Maharashtra Government and along the Marine Drive which is fondly known as the 'Queen's Necklace'. Visit Mani Bhavan, where Mahatma Gandhi stayed during his visits to Mumbai. Drive past the Victoria Terminus, the principal railways station of Mumbai, a beautiful building that symbolise the ethos of the Edwardian architecture, well worth a photo stop. At the Church gate station see the Dabbawala’s- a unique tiffin delivery service run by over 5000 semiskilled workers of delivering lunch to corporate executives from their homes. Visit the 'Dhobi Ghat', an open laundry where Mumbai's 'dirties' are scrubbed, bashed, dyed and hung out to dry - a nice photography stop well worth a visit. Visit the ISKON Temple devoted to Lord Krishna in time for the noon Arti and then continue to the colourful Crawford market and Flora fountain a large bustling square, in the heart of the city.

Meal: Breakfast

Upon arrival at Aurangabad Airport you will be met by our company representative and transferred to your hotel to check-in.

A major industrial center, Aurangabad was founded by Malik Ambar in 1610. The city is known as a base for excursions to the UNESCO World Heritage listed sites of Ajanta and Ellora.

Meal: Breakfast

Enjoy a full day excursion to the UNESCO World Heritage listed Buddhist caves of Ajanta (Remain closed on every Mondays). Located 106km northeast of Aurangabad, the caves date from around 200BC to 650AD. As Buddhism slowly declined, the Ajanta Caves were abandoned and gradually forgotten until 1819 when a British hunting party stumbled upon them. Their isolation contributed to the fine state of preservation in which some of their remarkable paintings remain to this day.

Within the 30 rock-hewn caves the murals show scenes from Buddha's life and from the Jataka Tales, which recount stories of Buddha's previous incarnations as an enlightened being or Bodhisattva. The murals include depictions of court scenes, princes and musicians and offer fascinating glimpses of daily life in the 5th Century. The colors of ochre, lime, black, green and lapis lazuli is prevalent throughout the site.

Return to Aurangabad later this afternoon.

Meal: Breakfast and Lunch

This morning enjoy a half day excursion to Ellora Caves( Remain closed on every Tuesdays), another World Heritage listed site. Housing 34 rock-cut shrines representing Buddhist, Hindu and Jain art, the caves date back to the 4th and 5th Century AD. The caves are carved into the side of a basaltic hill 30km from Aurangabad. The most remarkable among them is the Kailash Temple, meant to be a replica of Lord Shiva’s celestial abode, Kailash. It is the best example of rock-cut architecture and the engineering skills of the times.

This afternoon you will be transferred to the airport where your arrangements end.
