Some of the noteworthy rock- cut shrines of the Rashtrakuta period are the Ravvana -ka- Khai and Dasavatara, the Rameshwara and Durmarlena.

The terrible emotion in the scene has been executed in an effective.

Some of the Jaina rock shrines of the Rashtrakuta period are the Chota Kailasa, Indra Sabha and Jagannath Sabha. The pillars are renewed for their rich sculpture and fine finish. However, the sculpture in these shrines lack like- like appearance. They are rather cold and impersonal. Thus it appears that be style of sculpture in the these shrines bear the unmistakable impact of Hindu and Jains who were more inclined towards spiritualism.

The elephanta caves are famous their artistic skill and beauty.

They are superior to be the sculpture of Ellora. The Nataraja and Sadashiva reliefs are well executed. It is more refined than the Bhairava relief at Ellora. Some of the other sculpture, unique in the other sculptures, unique in nature are the Trimurthi and Ardhanaishwara in the Maheshamurthi at Elephanta. Here the Almighty is depicted in triple form, as the creator, destroyer and protector of the universe. The painting of the Rashtrahutas have been found on the ceilings of the Maheshamurthi shrine at Elephanta and in the porch of the great temple of Kailasanatha at Ellora. The contributions of the Rashtrakutas have carved a special position for them in the field of art and architecture.
