UNESCO World Heritage Site - This temple is world's largest monolithic structure carved from one piece of rock and the most extensive rock-cut projects ever undertaken. It is believed that the construction of the Kailash Temple was started in the mid 8th century under the direction of King Krishna I (757-775) of the Rashtrakuta dynasty. Kailash Temple is situated near the village of Ellora, 30 km from Aurangabad. The temple is considered as one of the most astonishing buildings in the history of architecture. This is one of the largest 34 excavations at Ellora, which took almost a century. Kailash Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The idol measures 109 feet wide by 164 feet long.

A beautiful collection of the religious-architectural heritage. Khajuraho is missing?

Dear Javeed thanks for your visit, there are few photographs of Khajuraho in my album. You can search my album with the tag "Khajuraho"

Wishing you Happy & Prosperous New Year
