In this picture you can see the large stone hall inside the temple. The pillars and ceiling is intricately decorated with sculptures. The Buddha can be seen inside the main shrine.
Here is another temple hall which appears plain by contrast. However most of the artwork has simply been eroded away by time. On the pillars you can see the remnants of the coloured paintings. One can only imagine how spectacular the temple must have looked when it was just made.
The inside of one of the main caves at Ajanta. The ceilings, walls and pillars are all elaborately sculptured and painted.
A look at the inner sanctum where the figure of Buddha is kept.
A passageway or corridor with Buddha sculptures at the side of the main hall.
