One of the earliest Buddhist cave temple built around 2nd BC, without any Buddha image, as what Buddha requested before he died. Its only subsequently later that Buddha images was added in Buddhist temple and spread all the way to the East in Asia. The wooden beam on the ceiling is created to distribute sound when chanting behind the stupa. It was probably copied and used in churches. Karla cave temple, Lonovla, Maharashtra, India.
