Bagh (caves) is an archaeologically important site containing ancient Indian mural paintings.—Similar to Ajanta’s, beautiful frescoes were found at Bagh Caves, 150 km north of Ajanta. These paintings depict some aspects of Buddhist life and rituals besides scenes from ordinary life. One of the most famous paintings depicts a procession of elephants, while another depicts a dancer and women musicians. The influence of Ajanta is very apparent at Bagh.
