Ellora is a village in India known for the 34 temples cut in the rock of nearby basaltic cliffs. Three religions are represented at the Ellora caves: Buddhism, Hindouism, and Jainism. While the Buddhist caves are the oldest, the Hindu temples show more sophisticated decoration, especially the Kailasa (or Kailash) Temple depicted in the above engraving.
