The speciality of Ajanta is its magnificent and oldest paintings. Out of several caves found all over the world, Ajanta has the largest number of paintings.

These caves were discovered in AD 1819 and were built up in the earlier 2nd century BC-AD. Most of the paintings in Ajanta are right from 2nd century BC-AD and some of them about the fifth century AD and continued for the next two centuries.
