Ajanta: The History And The Mystery (2010)

  
Format:  Ajanta: The History And The Mystery DVD 
 
 
Located in India, the Caves of Ajanta were occupied by Buddhist monks for over 800 years, until one day, they were abruptly abandoned. But in 1819, nearly 1,200 years later, the caves were rediscovered, and inside, magnificent paintings and sculptures were found on the walls. This intriguing documentary presents a rare look at the artwork--too sensitive to be photographed--and uncovers the meaning behind these spiritual masterpieces. 56 min. Soundtrack: English.
