India with ancient civilization, have first made use of caves to leave their imprint on walls. They have carved emblems, animals, painted stories and later they sculpted deities. Even the Buddhist and Jainism, like Hindu traditions, have huge sculptures of Buddha and Mahavira in the caves.
Caves have carried the culture and mysteries of yesteryears over the years across civilizations. Some of the caves have rich paintings – like Bagh Caves, while others have elaborate intricate sculpture like Vishnu Boar Avatar – a statue over 5 feet long.
