About this item

Spink on text and Yaguchi on illustrations continue their analysis of a Buddhist monastery complex in the Deccan plateau in west central India that was excavated into bedrock during the fifth century CE in imitation of and homage to similar monastic efforts there that had been abandoned three hundred years before. In this volume, they are particularly concerned with the previously unexplored connections between Bagh and Ajanta, and with the surprising manner in which the Vakataka caitya halls at Ajanta were wrenched around in the rock in a remarkable attempt to shift them into alignment with the solstices, even after their excavation had been started.
