I am telling you about Ajanta caves only.

The Ajanta caves were initially meant to be Hindu temples. However, during the Gupta dynasty, the Ajanta caves became a Buddhist retreat and there were hundereds of paintings and sculptures in the caves which show scenes from the life of the Buddha as well as events from other periods in ancient history.

Indians learnt how to cast iron and they also introduced coinage system in the 5th century.

Most of the Gupta architectures were inspired by religion.One of them had been Buddhism.

These are some literature works done by Kalidasa :
Shakuntala, the most famous and studied work.
Kumarasabhava
and finally, Meghduta.

That is all I have.Hope I did not include any irrelevant points or so.

I think you have done a great job explaining on India's Golden Age. It is very clearly explained. Well done :)

For Germaine (1A4),

Thank you for the extra facts on Ajanta Caves. The information you provided is not inside the textbook which means that you read more than just the textbook. Congratulations :)
