1200 Years Old Kailasa temple Carved From a Single Rock
@Ellora, Maharashtra state of BHARAT (India) ..
It is a part of a set of 34 temples and monasteries renowned as the Ellora Caves. This temple is a remarkable example of architecture in the 8th century due to its almost accurate proportions and intricate workmanship by a set of dedicated sculptors in a time when there must have been only hand tools available for construction and elephants for transporting heavy building material. 👏
This temple is popularly known as the Kailash Temple and its main deity goes by the name of Kailashnath, which is literally translated as the Lord of Kailash, and this temple is dedicated to the God Shiva. 🙏
This temple is estimated to have been built between 757 and 783 CE with a view to liken Mount Kailash, where Shiva is believed to reside as per Hinduism. An estimated 400,000 tons of rocks were scooped out over a really long period of 20 years to construct this monolithic structure.
Om Namo Narayanaya 🙏🌼
