Source: Shodhganga: Ajanta’s antiquity

Bhadrabandhu (भद्रबन्धु) was one of the persons witnessing the excavation of the Ajantā caves on behalf of the monk Buddhabhadra.—Whether [Bhadrabandhu and Dharmadatta] were artists, overseers, or architects we are not told. But from analysis of the inscription and the monument it appears that the two monks were not just overseers; they were experts in vāstu, pratimāvijnāna, and jyotiṣ. Our analysis claims that the duos could be prime contenders for the first known Great Masters of Indian art.
