Ajanta Caves details - Cave 4
The porch colonnade of cave 4 began at the
same time as those of cave 17,but was not finished. There were faults
in the rock, which probably were against further excavations. Apart
from the seated Buddha in the shrine, there are large unfinished Buddha
images. These remained unfinished because by the time the cave was excavated
patronage was finished. There is a double row of kneeling devotees by
the crouching deer. All these are witnessing the symbolic wheel of law.
