As many as 40 rock paintings have been recently discovered in the Kondane caves in the Raigad district of Maharashtra. Images have been found in both natural and man-made caves along with specimens of Buddhist rock-cut architecture such as an unfinished Buddhist Chaitya i.e. a prayer hall with a stupa at one end. Does anyone know about these striking paintings and images that have been found in the Kondane caves?

Yes, I`ve also heard about these recent discoveries in the Kondane caves of Maharashtra. One image discovered, if of a hunter depicted in a poised fashion standing with a bow and arrow. There is a Barasingha swamp deer nearby. I want to gather more information on these. Anyone having so with regard to the Kondane caves please let me know.

It is an important discovery as it was not aware of the existence of rock art images in the western region of Maharashtra where the Kondane caver are situated said one of the rock art specialists.
