Indiana Jones called, he wondered why the hell they aren’t filming his next movie HERE.
Kailashnath Temple, also Kailash Temple or Kailasanath Temple is a famous temple dug…in the wall of a high basalt cliff in the complex located at Ellora, Maharashtra, India. It is a megalith carved out of one single rock. It was built in the 8th century by the Rashtrakuta king Krishna I.
The Kailash Temple is notable for its vertical excavation—carvers started at the top of the original rock, and excavated downward.
It is estimated that about 400,000 tons of rocks was scooped out over hundreds of years to construct this monolithic structure.

A few steps from the Museum of Marrakech, the Koranic school Ben Youssef and close to the famous square Jemaa El Fna, the riad is the ideal starting point for discovering the beauties of the city. It covers an area of approximately 1,200 m2, offering absolute privacy and an atmosphere of great elegance. Dar Darma has been restored preserving the valuable elements decorating the interiors as the hand-painted wooden ceilings, the delighful plasterwork and the precious ancient portals. At guests’ disposal 4 luxurious suites and 2 apartments: rooms with fireplace, one or two bedrooms with private bathroom and all comfort. The spacious rooms, the traditional hammam, terraces with shaded lounges, swimming pool and a spectacular view of the city complete the offer of the dwelling.
Marrakech was my least favorites city in Morocco because of all the tourists and the fact that the rest of Morocco is so uniquely different than most people assume but my god this place is gorgeous. take me back, puhlease!!!
