Caption: Kailasa Temple. Carved directly into a basalt rock cliff, this temple forms part of the large Ellora Caves complex, near Aurangabad, Maharashtra State, India. The temples date from 600-1000, and are a mixture of religious carvings from Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. The basalt rock is part of the massive Deccan Traps lava flow that, around 66 million years ago, covered what is now west- central India. Photographed in 1999.
