The Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) has said that the tourist arrivals at Ajanta Ellora Caves
had increased by 80% this year.
Arrivals increased from 10,000 on weekends last year to 18,000 this year. “This uptake is a result of the recent restoration and conservation project at this site, which was done with a total investment of US$ 61.1 million,” MTDC official was quoted as saying by the Business Standard.
Ajanta Visitor Centre offers audio-visual presentations, library, cafeteria, auditorium and an amphitheatre. The Ellora Visitor Centre also houses similar facilities for visiting tourists.
