Ajanta caves with the masterpieces of Indian Buddhist art

Ajanta was unexpectedly rediscovered in 1819 by a British officer who came there for tiger hunting. While numerous Indian Buddhist ruins are well known for their stone carvings, Ajanta caves are left with many murals  that were mainly built in two periods, the former being BC 2nd century to AC 2nd century and the latter was mid-5th century to 7th century parallel to the time when Buddhist art had commenced to prosper.
The Padmapani in the first cave is one of the pronounced works in Ajanta Caves, which is said to have influenced the manner of painting of Mahasthamaprapta in the Main Hall of Horyu-ji Temple in Japan that was destroyed by a tragic fire in 1949.
The murals were painted with some kinds of pigment like lapis lazuli, which is said to be brought from Afghanistan, or loess etc. on the wall of the caves undercoated by the materials of cow dung, clay or lime etc.
The murals show the Buddha's biography and Jataka (the previous births of the Buddha) tales that are easily understood by illiterate people.

The must-see stone carvings! Kailasanathar Temple

Ellora Caves were carved out by Buddhist, Hindu and Jain monks over a span of 500 years from AD 6th to 10th century. Among the 34 caves on the cliff stretching for 2 km, 12 are Buddhist, 17 are Hindu and 5 are Jain. Because Ellora Caves have been prominently known and complimented since the time it was started to be built unlike Ajanta, only a few paintings are present inside the caves in today’s time. However, Kailasanathar Temple, the 16th cave, carved out by digging down the basaltic hill, gives a depth and apex of Indian stone carvings, with the wondrous carvings of 4 lions above the praying hall and several gods and goddesses meticulously carved.
