Living Rock offers new perspectives into the fascinating world of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain cave sites in the western Deccan. From the 2nd century BCE to the 10th century CE, rock cut temples and monasteries appeared at various sites in the subcontinent - most notably across the western Deccan. Carved on the edge of the basaltic plateau, the cave sites were strategically placed near ancient trade routes and fertile land, showcasing architectural spaces designed for a variety of worship practices and monastic uses. With a wealth of material evidence, Living Rock presents elected case studies that explore fresh avenues of investigation. Contributions by archaeologists, art historians, historians and scholars of religion trace the cultural and religious phenomena associated with the development of these sites. Some proposed investigative models suggest new relationships between literary and visual evidence; others connect cave centres to religious and artistic contexts located outside the western Deccan, placing the rock-cut monuments in a wider cultural landscape. Printed Pages: 140 with numerous colour illustrations.
