The Ajanta caves in Maharashtra are a collection of 30 Buddhist caves that were constructed between 200 BCE and 600 CE in the Indhyadri range of the Western Ghats. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Ajanta caves are the finest instances of Buddhist religious art. The caves bear testament to the vibrancy and intricacy of ancient Indian art with most of the surviving murals inside the caves illustrating the stories behind the rebirths of Buddha, as depicted in the Jataka tales.
