Kailash Temple

Question: What required the removal of 200,000 tonnes of rock, 7000 laborers 150 years to complete, is twice the size the Parthenon in Athens and 1 1/2 times as tall?

Answer: The Kailash Temple at at Ellora, Maharashtra, India.

I was first introduced to this amazing temple through a web site called World-Mysteries. World Mysteries explores lost civilizations, ancient ruins, sacred writings, unexplained artifacts, science mysteries, “alternative theories”, subject experts, related books and resources on the Internet.

Their article on the Kailash Temple  can be found here. Also Wikipedia has some excellent information on this amazing place!
