Ellora – religious complex – Largest temple of world

Ellora – religious complex – The largest temple of world. One of the largest monastic rock cave complexes in the world. It is located approximately 29 km southwest of Aurangabad, in Maharashtra, India. Due to its uniqueness, beauty and cultural value, it has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1983.

34 temples :

17 – Ancient Hindu (dated to the 600-900 A.D.),

Kailasa – Hindu temple, considered the most beautiful of all buildings in Ellora.

12 – Buddhist (dated to the 600-800 A.D.),

5 – Jain (dated to the 800-1000 A.D.).

Jainism arose in response to Hinduism and its caste system. Its main idea was non-violence and respect for all living things.

On the walls of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain temples there are frescoes depicting serpent creatures. They are much smaller than the people and the authorship of this place is questioned. There are theories that it is man-made. And that it was created by representatives of extraterrestrial civilization. Which used the special technologies from other worlds that cut stone like butter. It is estimated that today, with ten punching machines in operation, the construction of such a complex would require 200 days of uninterrupted excavation.

There are many different ventilation shafts in Ellora leading to underground and narrow corridors and under earth tunnels that cannot fit humans. There are hundreds of drilled holes in the floors.
