Descripción

About hundred kilometres to the north of Aurangabad, in the state of Maharashtra, in the heart of the Indhyadri ranges, are the imposing Ajanta caves. Carved in the rock of a steep cliff, overlooking one of the meanders of the Waghora, thirty rock shrines are spread out over six hundred metres, in an arch overhanging the river. It is in this ideal retreat a conducive haven for meditation and con&127&127&127&127templation, that from the 2nd century before Christ till the beginning of the &127&1277th century, Buddhist monks decided to retire and build this spectacular &127&127monastery in rock. The Ajanta caves, with their compelling architecture, their outstanding high-reliefs and sculptures, the remarkable richness and variety of the canopies and profusion of the shafts of their carved columns, are universally admired for the beauty of their paintings. These paintings, which decorate the walls, the columns, the door frames, the ceilings, illustrate, in a very detailed and precise fashion, about thirty avadana, or jataka extracted from the vast body of tales, poems and belleds, sanctified and edifying tales attributed to the Buddha who, it is said, narrated them to his disciples. These tales relate the history of the various incarnations of the blessed one. While being religious in nature, the Ajanta paintings--the latest and the most famous ones--express the extreme refinement of the period which gave rise to them, a period of unprecedented artistic and cultural culmination in northern India, then governed by a dynasty which was at the height of glory, political and economic power and territorial expension : the Gupta dynasty.

Sinopsis:

The first Buddhist cave monuments at Ajanta date from the 2nd and 1st centuries B.C. During the Gupta period (5th and 6th centuries A.D.), many more richly decorated caves were added to the original group. The paintings and sculptures of Ajanta, considered masterpieces of Buddhist religious art, have had a considerable artistic influence.
