The Buddhist Caves of Ajanta, located in Maharashtra, were built from 200BC to 600AD, almost 300 years after the death of The Buddha. These caves and sculptures, carved out of solid rock were beautifully sculpted and painted over a period of 800 years. For almost 1200 years however lay abandoned and forgotten. Though initially conceptualized to house monks, they developed over time to display some of the finest examples of rock-cut temples in the world. A pioneering wonder of Asia, this program takes us back in time and captures the changing life forms, art, culture, architecture and culinary rituals of this period. Feel the peace and tranquility of this ancient monastery while watching breathtaking images of cave paintings and sculpture.
