    Ajanta Caves were discovered by an Army Officer in the Madras Regiment of the British Army in 1819. Ajanta caves were listed amongst the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1983. The height of the caves rises up to 76 m and all the caves were connected to the stream with flight of stairs. There are in total 30 excavations found at the site, including an unfinished one. The main theme of paintings in the caves is the illustration of various Jataka stories and events from the life of Buddha.

    The colors and shades used were red yellow ochre, terra verte, lime, kaolin, gypsum, lamp black and lapis lazuli.  The main binding material used in the paintings was glue.
