CAVE 5 AJANTA
Cave 5 was never excaved; only the door was completed.
There is only a few feet dug beyond it. This is important because it shows
that the doors were being sculpted and finished before the cave was much
The door is not entirely complete, but what is sculpted
is beautifully done.
The heavy, curvilinear figures and low-relief makaras point
to an early date for the door.
