The archaeological site of Ajanta in the Indian state of Maharashtra is made up of five temples and twenty-four Buddhist monasteries, hewn in the rock wall of the Waghora river valley. Their construction dates back to about 200 BC and the shrines were a focus of spirituality for centuries. Then, around 650 AD they were abandoned and gradually forgotten, until they were rediscovered by a British tiger-hunting expedition in 1819. Today, the Ajanta complex is a UNESCO world heritage site and, with its treasure of paintings and sculptures, is considered an exceptional repertory of the origins and evolution of classical Indian art.
