Know Your Monument: The Ajanta Caves; Samayita Banerjee; Indian Express

In the sixth edition of this series on Indian monuments by Sahapedia, The Indian Express look at the rock-cut Ajanta Caves. A chance discovery in 1819 led to the first exposure of the spectacular artistic vision contained in the Ajanta and Ellora Caves (The Indian Express carried Ellora in the third edition). Built in two phases over more than 500 years, with collective patronage cutting across religions, the Ajanta Caves stand out as the finest example of the arts, architecture, and sculpture of ancient India.
