The Kailasa temple was miraculously carved out of one single rock. . Also known as ‘Cave 16’ of the Ellora Caves, and is notable for being the largest monolithic structure in the world that was carved out of a single piece of rock. . Apart from the temple’s impressive size, it is also remarkable for its sculptures, as well as for the fine workmanship of its other architectural elements. . Intricately carved panels may be found in the Kailasa Temple. Some of these, for example, depict scenes from the two major Hindu epics, the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. Additionally, in the southeastern gallery of the temple, there are 10 panels depicting the different avatars of the Hindu god Vishnu. . According to a medieval legend told by the Marathi people of Maharashtra, the Kailasa Temple was actually built within a week. This legend revolves around a queen whose husband was very ill. The queen prayed to Shiva, asking the god to heal her husband. In return for this favor, the queen vowed to build a temple dedicated to him and fast until the temple was completed. . The queen’s prayers were answered, and she proceeded to fulfil her vows. The queen’s architects, however, were concerned about her fast, as such a grand temple would require a long time to complete. One of the architects, whose name was Kokasa, however, assured the queen that he could build the temple in a week. Kokasa kept his word, and began carving the temple out of the rock from the top to the bottom. In a week, the Kailasa Temple was finished. . Kailasa Temple is a masterpiece that is difficult to explain how it was achieved. Apart from the ingenuity needed to accomplish this feat, the Kailasa Temple is also noteworthy for its numerous sculptures. In the main courtyard, for example, there is an image of Nandi, the sacred cow of Shiva, who is facing the Shivalinga. These traditional features can be found in all temples dedicated to Shiva. . At the base of the temple, elephant sculptures may be seen, which gives the viewer an impression that the whole structure is being supported on the backs of these beasts. . Was Kailasa Temple really built by primitive societies?

. Другие, меньшие по размерам храмы, также знамениты необычным скульптурным рельефом и каменной резьбой. В храме Рамешвара огромные настенные горельефы буквально обступают зрителя. Колонны и фасад почти полностью покрыты причудливыми изваяниями, пластическую мощь которых подчеркивает резкий контраст света и тени. . . . . #maharashtra #ellora #elloracaves #aurangabad #эллора #махараштра #beauty #photo #hindustan #hindustyle #lifestyle #wondermore #wanderlust #outdoors #stayandwander #india #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger #lifeofadventure #diary #arowndtheworld #diarysketch #traveldiaries #индия #индияпорусски #путеводительпоиндии

It's a group of around 30 rock cut caves, with paintings and significant to three religions; Hindu, Buddhist and Jain. One of the largest in the world. A little away from the town of Aurangabad, visit this UNESCO World Heritage site in Maharashtra if you're ever passing by!
