The Ajanta Caves.

Ancient Paintings of Buddhist India

ISBN: 9780500285015 (PB - E)

In 1819, British soldiers chanced upon the Ajanta caves, lying in a ravine some 200 miles north-east of Bombay. Ranging in date from the 2nd century BC to the 6th century AD, the exquisite Buddhist paintings and sculptures that they found there now rank among the world's most important cultural treasures. Ajanta provides virtually the only evidence remaining of painting styles that first developed in India and then travelled with the spread of Buddhism, and is now on UNESCO's list of World Heritage sites.
