Why to visit Kailasa Temple
The Kailasha or Kailashanatha temple, located in cave 16 of the Ellora Caves in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, is the world's largest monolithic rock-cut building. It is one of India's most impressive temples, carved out of a single basalt rock from the Charanandri Hills. It is known for its massive size, amazing architecture, and mind-boggling carvings. Kailasa Temple is an engineering marvel suited for history and architectural aficionados, with its complex decorations on panels, gigantic pillars, and statues of animals and deities. Lord Shiva, a Hindu deity, is honoured at this temple. The temple, which is linked to many tales, astounds every visitor because only one rock has been meticulously carved using only traditional methods.
