Yes, it really is !

 


The story

The construction of only ONE temple required the removal of three million cubic feet of stone, weighing more than 200,000 tons.
Located in the Aurangabad district of Maharashtra, India is one of the largest rock-cut monastery-temple cave complexes in the world: the Ellora Caves.
Although the caves were used as monasteries, temples, as well as rest stops for pilgrims, the Ellora caves were also an important commercial center in the Decan region, thanks to their location on the South Asian trade route.
The exact age of the cave temples is debated. The ancient site has been studied by archeologists and scholars since the British Colonial Rule.
Experts have had a hard time establishing an accurate timeline of the construction of the temple due to the numerous overlapping styles between Buddhist, Hindu and Jaina architecture.
