Cave No 19, Ajanta Caves , Aurangabad. In the historical texts of Jainism and Hinduism, including those relating to architecture, chaitya refers to a temple, sanctuary or any sacred monument.The term is most common in Buddhism, where it refers to a space with a stupa and a rounded apse at the end opposite the entrance, and a high roof with a rounded profile. Strictly speaking, the chaitya is the stupa itself. Chaityas appear at the same sites like the vihara, a strongly contrasting type of building with a low-ceilinged rectangular central hall, with small cells opening, off it, often on all sides. These often have a shrine set back at the centre of the back wall, containing a stupa in early examples, or a Buddha statue later. The vihara was the key building in Buddhist monastic complexes, used to live, study and pray in. Typical large sites contain several viharas for every chaitya. #traveldiaries #indiapictures #beautifuldestinations #creativeimagemagazine #passionpassport #ourplanetdaily #netgeotravel #yourshot_india #yourshotphotographer #incredibleindia #huffpostgram #aurangabad #explorer #Wanderlust #indianphotography #ajantacaves #MyPixelDiary #mytravelgram #igtravel #indiatravelgram @lonelyplanetmagazineindia #g_o_i #photographers_of_india #lonelyplanet #travelrealindia #india_undiscovered #_woi #Igramming_India #i_hobbygraphy #igersofindia #_indiadiaries

Beautiful mural painting inside cave 2 at the Ajanta Caves, dating from the 5th century CE.

“A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise. —- You are what you think. All that you are arises from your thoughts. With your thoughts you make your world. —- If you find no one to support you on the spiritual path, walk alone. There is no companionship with the immature.” - Buddha in Dhammapada —- Ajanta Caves Detail #bodhipictures #awakening #awareness #transcendence #illusorylifeiscinematic #likeamovie #sketch #drawing #illustration #penandink #doodle #buddha #dharma #sangha #buddhism #sculpture #ajantacaves #ajantaellora #buddhistart #bodhisattva #unescoworldheritagesite #dharmachakramudra #dharmachakra #maharashtra #rockcutarchitecture #stillness #serenity #meditative #dhammapada #incredibleindia

Talladas en roca en las montañas de la India occidental, las cuevas de Ajanta son una obra maestra cultural de la India antigua. Este sitio fue declarado Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO ya que es una colección de pinturas, esculturas y templos de arte budista, construidos entre el 200 a.C. y el 500 d.C. Las cuevas de Ajanta son solo una parte de una serie de conjuntos arquitectónicos en el oeste de la India; las otras son Ellora, Bhaja y Karla. El complejo de cuevas de Ajanta constituye la colección más grande de pinturas murales y esculturas indias de la historia de la India. Estas cuevas se encuentran a lo largo de la garganta de un río en forma de herradura. Fueron talladas durante dos períodos distintos, el primero del 200 a.C. al 100 d.C. y el segundo de alrededor del siglo V de nuestra era. Se cree que las primeras cuevas pertenecen al período Satavahana (el primero) y están influenciadas por el budismo hinayana. Probablemente fueron construidas bajo el patrocinio de la dinastía Satavahana. Dos de ellas son Chaitya-grihas (un santuario budista o sala de oración con una estupa en un extremo), mientras que las otras son viharas (salas de oración y de vida). En general, estas cuevas, y durante ambos períodos, fueron utilizadas por los monjes budistas como centros de aprendizaje, meditación y residencia. Se cree que los monjes se quedaban allí durante la época de las lluvias monzónicas, ya que tenían prohibido viajar durante esa época del año, utilizando el tiempo disponible para crear las pinturas y esculturas.📿 * * * #buda #india #indiatravel #indiacliks #instagramers #travellovers #instagramtravel #clicksindia #indiandiares #hindu #igtravel #travelblogger #loveindia #instatravel #travelword #travelindia #india_ig #ajanta #ajantacaves #budistas #caves #ajantaellora #unescoworldheritage #elloraghaitsanikhairunnis #buddhistmonk #buddhist #buddhisttemple #tibetanmonk #monksbudistsspraying

Symmetry... Another one from Ajanta . This keeps me wondering without any modern tools and techniques, how those Monks have even able to carve the caves. Perfect straight line and angles, even floor, and light source. #Ajantadiaries #ajantacaves , #symmetry, #travelphotography , #traveldiaries , #aurangabad, #ancient

Paintings 1. Jataka tales from AJANTA caves. 2. Painting from the AJANTA caves. The Ajanta Cave paintings are the earliest and most important wall paintings in India and are particularly significant because all other forms of painting, such as palace murals and painting on wood, cloth or palm-leaf from before about 1000 C.E. have not survived. The technique and process used to create the Ajanta cave paintings are unlike any other artwork found in the art history of other civilizations, and are unique within the history of South Asian art. The walls, ceilings and columns of the caves were covered with complex compositions of the Jataka stories and ornate floral and animal decorations. The paintings depict a universe in which aristocratic men and women dwell in harmony with an abundant nature. The exuberance and richness of the painting suggests that the artists were accustomed to painting secular as well as religious works. The process of painting involved several stages. First, the rock surface was chiseled to make it rough enough to hold a plaster made of clay, hay, dung and lime over a clay under-layer. Differences are found in the ingredients and their proportions from cave to cave. While the plaster was still wet, the drawings were outlined and the colors applied. The wet plaster had the capacity to soak up the color so that the color became a part of the surface and would not peel off or decay easily. The colors were referred to as 'earth colors' or 'vegetable colors.' Various kinds of stones, minerals, and plants were used in combinations to prepare different colors. The paint brushes used to create the artwork were made from animal hair and twigs. The outline drawing has a fluency and vigor not found in later Indian painting. Modeling and highlights, as well as spatial recession are used to accentuate the volume of the figures. The latest paintings show some of the highly-stylized, flatter qualities of paintings from the succeeding centuries. . . Visit: www.bkpbooks.com . .
