The Kailasha Temple at Ellora in Maharashtra, India is a unique example of Dravidian architecture on account of its striking proportion, elaborate workmanship, architectural content, and sculptural ornamentation of rock-cut architecture.
This large temple was carved out of ONE SINGLE ROCK, from top to bottom.
It is estimated that about 400,000 tons of rocks were scooped out over hundreds of years to construct this monolithic structure.
The Kailasha Temple is the unrivaled centerpiece of the Ellora Caves, which consists of 34 caves built between the 5th and 10th century.
