of the ancient world is the majestic Kailasa temple,
which was carved out of
a single rock 1,200 years ago...
Massive and sometimes "impossible" structures make us wonder how the ancient people built something like this thousands of years ago, without the sophisticated construction equipment we have today.
One of such structures is the majestic Kailasa temple, which was carved out of a single rock 1,200 years ago. Located in the Maharashtra state in western India, it's definitely one of the most impressive ancient Hindu temples.
It's a part of the famous
Ellora Caves, an area that extends
over more than two kilometers (1,2 miles) and includes the total of
34 monasteries and temples.
It is oriented towards
Mount Kailash, which is the home of
the god Shiva, according to the Hindu beliefs.
The walls were carved
with extreme precision from top down, with a vertical excavation
method. No surprise that this challenging task took centuries of
human labor to complete.
According to him,
Despite all the research efforts, the archaeologists are clueless as to who built the temple and for what purpose.
The only certain thing is
that the builders of the Kailasa temple had truly remarkable skills
since they managed to create such a huge monolithic structure
using just a few hand tools like hammers, chisels, and picks...
Some people even argue that it was built with the use of alien technologies.
