Kailasa Temple in India is carved out of a single piece of rock. One of India’s greatest monuments, this #astonishing temple, carved from solid rock, was built by King Krishna I in AD 760 to represent Mt Kailasa (Kailash), #Shiva ’s #Himalayan abode. To say that the assignment was daring would be an understatement. Three huge trenches were bored into the sheer cliff face, a process that entailed removing 200,000 tonnes of rock by hammer and chisel, before the #temple could begin to take shape and its remarkable sculptural decoration could be added Photographer Unknown: DM for Credit or Removal.
