Chapter Summary

This section of the book Ajanta: History and Development: Volume 6: Defining Features presents the summary of evidence bearing upon the disputed dating of Harisena's reign. The book speaks about Harisena who himself sponsored Cave 1, the greatest vihara in India; his famed minister Varahadeva donated Cave 16 "for the best of ascetics"; the lavish local feudatory king Upendragupta "expended abundant wealth" on Caves 17-20 and 29; and the troublesome neighboring Asmakas took over the site's whole western end.

Keywords: Ajanta; Harisena's reign
