Answer:
 The ancient Buddhist and Jain caves,  monasteries and temples are instances of early rock-cut architecture. Indications of association between the religion and commerce are palpable from the relics of the caves. Some of the cave temples witnessed inclusion of elaborate facades, arches and pillars due to the patronage of wealthy traders. The exteriors of the caves were face-lifted with facades and the interiors were apportioned for different purposes like developing areas for cave shrines called chaityas which are the congregational worship halls and viharas or monasteries where the monks resided.
