This war scene shown in a temple frieze in the Kailashanatha Temple built by the Rashtrakuta emperor Krishna I (756-773 CE) depicts the Mahabharata war. The soldiers' arms and armour however, belong to the period of the imperial Rashtrakutas (eighth to tenth centuries CE). This scene thus shows how the Rashtrakuta army, including the war elephants, looked like.
