Ajanta Caves in Maharashtra,
India - Ancient Buddhist monastery
Bring the Power, Grace, Blessings
and Protection of the Buddha to
your room, house, business or workplace.
In 1983, the Ajanta Caves were
declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Ajanta Caves are a Buddhist
monastery complex consisting of
29 caves (as officially numbered
by the Archaeological Survey of India),
located in a wooded and rugged
horseshoe-shaped ravine about
3.5 km from the village of Ajintha,
which is situated in the Aurangābād
district of Maharashtra State in India...
During this period, Buddhism pursued
the Hīnayāna doctrine, which initially
prohibited the worship of anthropomorphic
images of Buddha. Caves 9 and 10, the
Chaitya-grahas (homes of the Sacred,
monument halls) do not have anthropomorphic
images of Buddha, though on the
façade of Cave No. 9 such images
were subsequently added. Around
the first century B.C.E. Hinayana
allowed the making of Buddha's
personal images. The shift from
non-image to image characterizes
other caves of this early phase,
known as the Hinayana-Satavahana phase.
