Photograph of the bridge leading to Asaf Jah's fort at Ajanta, from the Curzon Collection: 'Caves of Ajunta in HH the Nizam's Dominions', taken by Deen Dayal in the 1890s. The old town of Ajanta is situated 8 km from to the south of the famous Buddhist cave temples excavated into the sides of a rocky horseshoe-shaped gorge around 200 BC and later in the 5th century AD. The town is surrounded by a strong fortified wall and moat built by the Nizam in 1727. This view shows the bridge leading to the fort.
