    • Abstract:
      Buddhist rock-cut cave temples and monasteries, near Ajanta village, north-central Maharashtra state, western India, are celebrated for their wall paintings depicting colorful Buddhist legends and divinities with an exuberance and vitality that is unsurpassed in Indian art. The temples are hollowed out of granite cliffs on the inner side of a 70-foot (20-meter) ravine in the Wagurna River valley, 65 miles (105 kilometers) northeast of Aurangabad, at a site of great scenic beauty. The Ajanta Caves were designated a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1983.
