Plan of Tin Tali cave temple at Ellora engraved by Thomas Daniell after the drawings of James Wales from '[Plans of] Hindoo Excavations in the mountain of Ellora' published by Thomas Daniell in London in 1803.

Tin-Thal is part of the Buddhist group at the spectacular site of Ellora which is famous for its series of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain cave temples excavated into the rocky fa├žade of a cliff of basalt under the patronage of the Kalachuri, the Chalukya and the Rashtrakuta dynasties between the 6th and the 9th centuries. Tin-Thal consists of a broad forecourt with three superimposed halls extending deep into the cliff. The halls were used for congregational purposes and each was provided with a sanctuary with a seated Buddha and Bodhisattva attendants.
