Notes on the Geography of Peninsular India: The Bhaje, Bedse, and Karla Caves: Photo 58

world pictures Peninsular India: The Bhaje, Bedse, and Karla Caves

"The screen is cut in the rock as at Bedsa, and not in wood as at Bhaja..." "A few years ago I reported that this screen was leaning out, and in danger of falling. Mr. Fergusson wrote me to endeavour to have it restored, and after some delay this was effected under the superintendence of Colonel Goodfellow, R.E., Executive Engineer of the district. Mr. Fergusson remarks, "It wold be a thosand pities if this, which is the only original screen in India, were allowed to perish." "The pairs of large figures on each side of the doors alone appear, like those at Kanheri, to have belonged to the original design." In other words, the images of the Buddha and attendants that appear above the large figures seem to be later additions replacing the fencing pattern.
