Ellora, Maharashtra, India, is the most awe inspiring place I've ever been. This cave, No. 16 of 34, is a single sculpture carved out of the mountain over generations, including the huge rooms and the figures and designs within them. Nothing you see was added on or built. The rock is so hard, the artists' pick marks have yet to erode from the walls of the cave after millennia.
