ellora (എല്ലോറ ഗുഹകള്‍)






Ellora is an archaeological site, 30 km (19 mi) from the city of Aurangabad in the Indian state of Maharashtra built by the Rashtrakuta rulers. Well-known for its monumental caves, Ellora is a World Heritage Site. Ellora represents the epitome ofIndian rock-cut architecture. The 34 "caves" – actually structures excavated out of the vertical face of the Charanandri hills – being Buddhist, Hindu and Jain rock cut temples andmonasteries, 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.


എല്ലോറയിലെ പതിനാറാം നമ്പര്‍ ഗുഹയാണ് ഈ ചിത്രങ്ങളില്‍. ആധുനികമനുഷ്യന്‍റെ കഴിവുകള്‍ ഒന്നുമല്ല എന്ന തിരിച്ചറിവ് നല്‍കുന്ന കാഴ്ച. മല, തുരന്ന് നിര്‍മ്മിച്ചതാണ് ഇതെല്ലാം.
