India, 1819. While hunting tigers an English officer stumbled upon a cave that had been abandoned and forgotten, except by the locals, for hundreds of years. But it was not just one cave, nor was it a cave at all. Further exploration revealed over sixty beautifully and elaborately carved temples cut into the living rock. These ancient structures, dating between 200 BCE and 650 CE, came to be known as the Ajanta and Ellora caves. The gods and symbols of Buddhists, Jains and Hindus adorned carved pillars and walls. But perhaps the most astounding find of all was the interior wall paintings. Though time had damaged many of the paintings what endured appears fresh and beautiful.
