Ellora and the overwhelming Kailash temple. To build this rock cut temple, three huge trenches were cut out of the cliff and it is estimated that more than 2,00,000 tons of rock was removed in the process. Without dynamite or any of the modern equipment, more than 1200 years ago. And to illustrate the scale, this temple covers more than twice the area of Parthenon in Acropolis in Athens and is 1 1/2 times high. The entire temple is cut out of a single monolithic rock and was excavated downward i.e. carvers started at the top of the original rock and moved down.
