It includes a summary of the latest research carried out in the last few decades. It brings together critical information from scholarly books and periodicals.

There are 284 colour photographs depicting architecture, paintings, sculpture, and decorative motifs in comprehensive detail. For the first time at least one photograph of all the narrative themes of the Ajanta paintings have been printed in a book.
