While Ajanta caves are dedicated only to Buddhism, Ellora depicted a little more religious harmony with its carefully crafted Buddhist, Hinduism, and Jain excavations. Amongst all the caves at Ellora, you will find cave number 16, the Kailasa Temple particularly famous. It is carved out of a single rock and is one of the world’s largest monoliths.

🕍 Architecture & People 🐒 The Kailasa Temple has been dubbed as ‘Cave 16’ of the Ellora Caves, & is notable for being the largest monolithic structure in the world that was carved out of a single piece of rock.

This is a double storied Buddhist cathedral-cum-monastery which is the only chaitya Griha out of total 34 caves which are open to public at Ellora Cave is stylistically and palaeographically datable to 7 century CE. It is a beautiful creation of artists, who have copied the contemporary wooden constructions in cave architecture. The most remarkable feature is the Music Gallery (upper floor) and the beautiful carved facade. The cave is entered through a gate, cut in the natural rock, which leads into a courtyard, with cells on both sides arranged in two storeys. Through the courtyard, one reaches the shrine of Lord Buddha, a typical chaityagriha. The chaitya once had a high screen wall, which is ruined at present. The shrine is 81 feet long 43 feet wide and 34 feet high. The hall is divided into a nave with side aisles by 28 octagonal pillars, each 14 feet high. At the heart of this cave is a 15-foot statue of Buddha seated in a preaching pose.
