Revisiting Ajanta - Explore Heritage Sites Using Virtual Reality
Revisiting Ajanta was an explorative project to implement a Virtual Reality platform to explore heritage monument sites. In this project we have developed a framework for Mobile application and Virtual Reality platform that user can interact with to explore the UNESCO Heritage Site - Ajanta.
Virtual Reality Platform
We have developed a virtual reality platform that shows entire cave in 360 view on Tablet/Mobile Screens and VR headset. An interactive buttons on each painting will provide more visual details of particular part of the painting with reconstruction images and textual information. It also provides a layers of other information about Costumes, Jewelleries, Architecture of the cave etc. Our aim was to produce enormous off-site virtual reality experience of an Ajanta Caves.
