Ellora is an archaeological site, 29 km (18 mi) North-West of the city of Aurangabad in the Indian state of Maharashtra, built by the Rashtrakuta dynasty. It is also known as Elapura (in the Rashtrakuta literature-Kannada). Well known for its monumental caves, Ellora is a World Heritage Site. Ellora represents the epitome of Indian rock-cut architecture. The 34 "caves" are actually structures excavated out of the vertical face of the Charanandri hills. Rashtrakuta was a royal dynasty ruling large parts of the Indian Subcontinent between the sixth and the 10th centuries. During their rule architecture reached a milestone in the Dravidian style, the finest example of which is seen in the Kailasanath Temple at Ellora.

And in despair I bowed my head "There is no peace on earth," I said "For hate is strong,And mocks the songOf peace on earth, good-will to men!"Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:"God is not dead, nor doth he sleep!The Wrong shall fail,the Right prevail,With peace on earth, good-will to men!
