The Kailasa temple in Cave 16 is an architectural wonder, the entire structure having been carved out of a monolith. The abode of Lord Shiva, is the world's largest monolith, with the gateway, pavilion, assembly hall, sanctum and tower, all hewn out of a single rock. Amazingly, unlike other temple structures which are built base onwards, the sculptor started carving from the very top and the sides.
