       LORD KAILASANATH OF ELAPURA

Experts in the art world, like Ferguson have praised it lavishly seeing from several angles, like name of builder, date of construction, its place in sculptural art and resemblance to others of this type etc. It bears semblance to the famous temples of Papanatha temple at Pattadakal. It is built by Rastrakuta kings in imitation of Kailasanatha temple at Kanchi. Experts have estimated that more than two lakhs of tons of rock is excavated to construct this and it is a master piece in stone. Its excellences have been elaborately described in the art books by several connoisseurs.

The remaining caves too are visit-worthy and are housing several images of supreme artistry. The Cave No.2 and 22 are called Rameswara Nilakanta caves add dedicated mainly to Siva. The Cave No.25 contains the figure of Sun God with seven horses yoked to a chariot and is called Kumbhanwada cave. The Cave N0.27 is called Gopi Cave and No.29, Sitaki Nahani, perhaps for the type of images they posses. And all are grand. With this the Brahmanical caves end.
