Ellora is particularly astonishing. What is the accepted theory as to how it was created? Was it just hammer and chisel, hammer and chisel over the course of months, years, centuries? It's hard to fathom.

Rock cut architecture
Indians practically pioneered this technique
But the seperate idols are made seperately



On a different note:
This thread always gives me the chills

But also a heavy heart, 40,000 such magnificent heritage sites were lost in the reign of Aurangayzeb alone,
Oh what we have lost
