A temple-cavern vaster than Ellora with a giant 'lithophone' for organ!
There are thirty-four distinct rock-temples at Ellora, near Aurangabad, in India.
The Caves of Ellora, however, are the greatest and most notable.
No such sculpture, however, is mentioned in the detailed account of the Ellora caves by Dr. Burgess.
I pass over the wonderful Caves of Ellora, for, marvellous as they are, they are fully described in guide-books.
Daniels magnificent work on the celebrated temple of Ellora, hewn in the solid rock, interested me uncommonly.
The three deities were called Trimurtti, and in the caverns of Ellora they are united in a Triune bust.
The temples of Ellora are no less remarkable, but they do not offer the same artistic ensemble.
The greatest curiosity among the monuments of Ellora is the group of temples known by the name of Kylas (Fig. 2).
