Description

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.

The caption reads in the original French: Temples d’Ellora.

Another picture, showing the same Kailasa Temple from a different angle can also be found on the site.
