Under a new title this book is an abridged edition of An Introduction to the Ajanta Caves: With Examples of Six Caves, 1st ed. (Baroda: Hari Sena Press, 2012) by the same author. This edition is focused on the paintings of Ajanta, and does away from the detailed historical developments of the caves. The book highlights the corpus of the paintings that are currently extant on the site. It is somewhat in line with the earlier attempts by Robert Gill (1862, 1864, 1867), John Griffiths (1896-97), Gulam Yazdani (1930-55), Dieter Schlingloff (1999, 2013), and Monika Zin (2003) to accommodate the painted narratives and major non-narrative themes with corresponding illustrations and descriptive texts. Before Schlingloff and Zin, some of the painted themes were never identified at all; some were incorrectly identified; and many were correctly identified but various events, episodes, and scenes within a particular narrative or non-narrative panel were never fully explained. Schlingloff and Zin have done so with remarkable detail. Their illustrations are drawings, which are better suited for the purpose of in-depth study. There was a need to learn the same with the help of photographs. This book serves exactly the same purpose, albeit in an abridged format. For the first time, a book accommodates, within the space of a single volume: (a) the entire corpus of the extant panels of the narrative and non-narrative themes (86 panels); (b) all the latest identifications of the painted themes by Dieter Schlingloff of Leipzig University and Monika Zin of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich (c) short retelling of the Jatakas and other stories (86 narrative and non-narrative painted panels) (d) long-exposure, low light, fine arts photography of 86 painted panels (143 colour photos). Nontechnical language is used to help the students and general readers understand the entire corpus of the Ajanta paintings. At the same time, the content is so presented as to keep the expert readers engaged.

Volume 7 of Walter Spink's monumental and still controversial study of the famous Ajanta caves considers the many connections between the Bagh caves and its “sister site”, Ajanta, particularly emphasizing the leading role that Bagh plays in the crucial matter of Buddhist shrine development and the transition from the aniconic to iconic forms of worship. He also explains the relationships between certain caves and solstices, as well as changing technologies, especially in the development of the door fittings in the monks’ cells.

Ellora is one of the great cave temple sites of India, with thirty-four major Buddhist, Hindu, and Jain monuments of the late sixth to tenth centuries A. D. This book describes the Buddhist caves at Ellora and places them in the context of Buddhist art and iconography. Ellora's twelve Buddhist cave temples, dating from the early seventh to the early eighth centuries, preserve an unparalleled one-hundred-year sequence of architectural and iconographical development. They reveal the evolution of a Buddhist mandala at sites in other regions often considered "peripheral" to the heartland of Buddhism in eastern India. At Ellora, the mandala, ordinarily conceived as a two-dimensional diagram used to focus meditation, is unfolded into the three-dimensional program of the cave temples themselves, enabling devotees to walk through the mandala during worship. The mandala's development at Ellora is explained and its significance is considered for the evolution of Buddhist art and iconography elsewhere in India.
