Part of the Studies in Ancient Art and Archaeology series, with general editor Donald Strong. "Along the coastal reaches near Bombay, the flanks of the Deccan plateau have been tunnelled, carved, and polished into a series of cathedral-like caves. These sanctuaries are among the most imposing and sophisticated works of Indian religious art and were, for Buddhist India, the equivalent of the great cathedrals of mediaeval Europe. Until now, published information about these cave-temples, known as caityas, has been scanty and inadequate. In this book they are studied in detail in oder to answer the question of their chronology." -- dj flap.
