A Mysterious Temple In India Was Carved Out Of A Single Rock, And It Is A Must-See Sight
9Over four tons of rock to build the awesome Kailasha Temple
Archaeologists and experts believe that sculptors took out over four tons of rock to construct the breathtaking Kailasha temple. Even today, it is difficult to complete such a task using the largest available 10-ton JCB machines. If the largest available 10 ton JCB machines are used today, it is almost impossible to complete such a task. Dhwajasthamba is a prominent rock column that is likewise fascinating.
10Construction of temple with Vedic tradition
As is the Vedic ritual, before the construction of the Kailash temple started, the sculptors did a mahayagya and requested approval from the rock to construct the temple. The priests chanted and made the rock holy and energetic. That is why even today when people chant mantras, it resonates and peaks in a strange way. The way the sound vibrates and moves between pillars and walls of the structure is a sign that this place has the great blessing of the Indian sages.
11Researchers have claimed the existence of a huge underground civilization
Ellora caves have a number of narrow passages and deep tunnels. You can see them from outside clearly but once you reach 10 feet, they become too narrow for a human to go inside. Experts also found that the temple has many similar tunnels and entries to them are banned now. That’s why some experts regularly claim that there can be an underground civilization. All the caves have several ventilation shafts and holes on the floor. No one could know the actual cause of these holes.
12It is the oldest structure among all the caves in Ellora
Many historians and archaeologists have stated that cave no. 16 which is the Kailasa temple is the oldest of all the caves in Ellora. However, the design and architecture of this temple is more superior compared to other caves of Ellora. The Kailash temple is the only construction you can see from the air. Having a circular design and sculpture of four lions on the roof, the midair view of the Kailasa temple shows a large “X” sign.
