There are 34 rock-cut Buddhist, Hindu and Jain temples and monasteries from 7th to 10th centuries at Ellora. The most amazing is Cave 16: the Kailasa Temple (Kailasha, Kailash, Kailasanatha). It is the largest monument in the world cut from monolithic rock, UNESCO World Heritage Site.
According to UNESCO: “These 34 monasteries and temples, extending over more than 2 km, were dug side by side in the wall of a high basalt cliff… Not only is the Ellora complex a unique artistic creation and a technological exploit but, with its sanctuaries devoted to Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism, it illustrates the spirit of tolerance that was characteristic of ancient India.”
