Plan of Jagannatha Sabha and Indra Sabha rock-cut temples at Ellora, engraved by Thomas Daniell after the drawing by James Wales from '[Plans of] Hindoo Excavations in the mountain of Ellora' published by Thomas Daniell in London in 1803.
Ellora is well-known for its series of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain cave temples excavated into the rocky façade of a basalt cliff. The works were carried out under the patronage of the Kalachuri, the Chalukya and the Rashtrakuta dynasties between the 6th and the 9th centuries. The Jagannatha Sabha and Indra Sabha temples are part of the group of five Jain caves excavated during the 9th century under Rashtrakuta patronage and are situated to the north of the site.
