These tourist centers are developed with an idea to ensure safety & security to tourists, especially women tourists, cleanliness, hygeine and convenience. Both the centers are designed and developed on the idea of international interpretation centers to ensure better information about history, art, tradition, sculpture work etc. associated with these sites. In addition this, these tourist service centers will have exhibition hall, amphi-theatres, retail shops, restaurants and other vital amenities.
Ajanta’s tourist center is spread over an area of 323695 sq.mtr. area. It is having 5 museum halls, 3 restaurants, auditorium, actual size replicas of 4 caves and huge parking space as most of the tourists come on two-wheelers, taxi, car, buses etc. MTDC officials says that reason behind replica caves is to reduce adverse effects on paintings due to congestion of tourists in caves.
Ellora center is spread over an area of 210000 sq.mtr.. Here we can find 1/10th replica of Kailash Temple (Cave-16) and large parking space.
In addition to all this, both centers offer audio-visual presentations on Buddhism, introductory information of Ajanta & Ellora caves, their significance, mural painting art, Jatak tales and e-learning.
