    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    The distance between Shirdi and Ajanta Caves is about 201.5 kms via the Nagpur-Aurangabad-Mumbai Highway. It can take you 4 to 5 hours to reach the Ajanta Caves if you're taking your own vehicle. If you take the Ahmednagar-Aurangabad Road, then it's about 59 kms more. The total distance would sum up to be 260.1 kms.

    The distance between Shirdi and Ellora Caves is about 100 kms via the Nagpur-Aurangabad-Mumbai Highway. If you take the Udapur-Muthalane Road, it's a little longer at 103 kms.

    It depends on what route you take and whether you would bring your own vehicle. The Nagpur-Aurangabad-Mumbai Highway route can take about 4 to 5 hours. The Ahmednagar-Aurangabad Road can take longer at about 5 to 6 hours. This is to reach the Ajanta Caves.

    On the other hand, it can take two to three hours to reach Ellora Caves. It also depends on what route you take. But there's not much difference since both routes have almost the same number of kilometres.

    You can take a bus, a train or a taxi. The cheapest would be the bus. You can ride a bus from Shirdi to Aurangabad. The journey takes about three hours. From Aurangabad, you'd need to board another bus to reach Ajanta Caves or Ellora Caves. Ajanta Caves is about 100 kms away from Aurangabad, while Ellora Caves is just about 30 kms away.

    For a train, there are direct ones from Shirdi to Aurangabad Railway Station. The journey also lasts three hours or more. Once you reach the Aurangabad Railway Station, you can board buses going to Ajanta Caves or Ellora Caves. Otherwise, you can always just hire a taxi to take you there.

    A taxi is the most expensive option but also the most convenient. You can hire one directly from Shirdi for a one way trip or a round trip.

    The fastest would be by car or taxi. It can take the shortest time provided you just have ample stopovers and you leave before the morning rush hour.

    I hope this helps!
