BanglaHunt Desk: The temples of India (India) are a wonder in themselves. But there is a temple in India that science has not yet been able to explain exactly how to build.
Ajanta Ellora Cave Paints in India is very famous all over the world. Located just 30 km from the city of Aurangabad in Maharashtra, this temple is part of the Ellora architecture. This temple is named after the Kailasa mountain, the abode of Shiva. This temple is the largest monolithic architecture in the world.
You will be surprised to know that this temple is completely built by cutting a hill from top to bottom. Not a single stone is attached. Modern engineers estimate that about two million tons of stone had to be cut to make this temple. But surprisingly, not even a fraction of the cut stone is around the temple.
The temple was built about 1200 years ago today. This temple was built by the Rashtrakuta kings of South India. Needless to say, there were no cranes at that time. Without cranes or similar modern equipments, if 2 lakh tons of stones are removed in large numbers even at night, it will take at least a thousand years. It also has fine artwork.
All in all, modern engineers have not been able to estimate exactly how many years the temple could have been built in this way. You will be surprised to know that this temple was built by the sculptors of India at that time in just 16 years. How? Science does not have this answer.
Let's know some more features of the temple
1. The Kailash Temple in Ellora was built by the Rashtrakuta dynasty as the temple of Lord Shiva.
2. Kailash Temple is a unique, multi-storied temple complex, which looks a lot like Mount Kailash.
3. The Mughal ruler Aurangzeb tried to demolish the Kailash temple, but after many years of trying, the Mughal army did not do much damage to the temple.
