One of the most amazing feats of monumental building are the Ellora Caves. The construction of this site is attributed to 3 religious factions, all of which originated with the teaching passed down for 10,000 years through the Veda. Could these massive rock carving and sculptures be duplicated with “modern” technology? Would current “civilization” allow this work to be done?
Ellora Caves is an archaeological site, 29 km (18 mi) North-West of the city of Aurangabad in the Indian state of Maharashtra built by the Rashtrakuta dynasty. It is also known as Elapura (in the Rashtrakuta literature-Kannada). Ellora represents the epitome of Indian rock-cut architecture. The 34 “caves” are actually structures excavated out of the vertical face of the Charanandri hills. Buddhist, Hindu and Jain rock-cut temples and viharas and mathas were built between the 5th century and 10th century. The 12 Buddhist (caves 1–12), 17 Hindu (caves 13–29) and 5 Jain (caves 30–34) caves, built in proximity, demonstrate the religious harmony prevalent during this period of Indian history. — (Wikipedia.org)\
