Place is close to Aurangabad. By cutting rock from top to bottom and from front to back caves with different idols are carved. You can also visit Grishneshwar, Mhaismal, and Bhadra Maroti, Daulatabad Fort.

These caves are world famous and must be visited by everyone, particularly Kailash temple is excellent having very old Lord Shiva Temple and pictures of mahabharat etc. This temple was made from digging the rocks from top and worth seeing.

How easy it is to visit Ellora Caves from Shirdi? We will be in Shirdi for 2 days and want to keep one day for visiting Ellora Caves. How easy will it be to get cabs and does it make sense to travel to this attraction with a 3 year old kid keeping in mind long walks, sun and climbing?

aurangabad to Ellora and vice versa yes you get public transportation. Even from Ajanta to Aurangabad, but the frequency is less as it's around 100kms from Aurangabad.
