From the Satavahana period of construction, Caves 9 and 10 are Chaitya halls. It is believed that Cave 10 was made in 1st century BCE. Also, cave 9 was built approximately a century later. Dating back from the second period are shrinelets, i.e., small shrines, from caves 9A – 9D and 10A. The cave 10 paintings have some which have survived from the first period and also have many from the second period yet incomplete and not very modernized. There are also a large number of paintings from the recent excavations. Mostly all these paintings and inscriptions depict Buddha’s life. These paintings were done by almost over 300 artists, some of whose hands prints are still visible.
