       LORD KAILASANATH OF ELAPURA

Being linked up with another world famous cave temples of Ajanta, the touch-stone of the fresco art, the Ellora group has immortalised both the artistes and art patrons. Aesthetes, living all over the world, may or may not know the gods of Hindu Pantheon, but decidedly they have heard and seen some of them in the Kailasanath rock-cut temple here. Though the nucleus and locus of the central message of Buddhism and Jainism differ with Hinduism, and at times certain head strong pravaktas amongst themselves were at logger heads with each other, and later joined together to mount united attack on Hinduism, the catholicity of Hinduism is such that it extended its two hands to bring them into its own fold. It is here lies the universality of Hinduism and that accounts for the continuity of the spirit of eternity in its full vitality. Above all, although, this Kailasanath image does not have as much magnetic pull as some other Kailasadhipati's installed in temples like Kedarnath, Somanath, Kasi etc. with regard to offering of ritualistic prayer services or celebration of occasional and periodical festivals, its fame is neither less, nor attraction inferior. As a matter of fact, visitation by people and its frequency amazes everyone and publishes its uniqueness among the temples of India. It is one of the noblest Hindu relics of ancient India and an eternal monument perpetuating the glory of the stone cutters. And certainly an object of commendable pride of the state of Maharashtra and the crest jewel of Bharatamata.
