This 8th Century Temple Is Carved Out Of One Rock And People Are Calling It The 8th Wonder Of The World

There is so much to see on this planet and every single day we are surprised by new and magnificent wonders of the world. Recently, one Internet user that goes by the name BassBall55 shared incredible images of an 8th-century temple called Kailasa, saying that it should be considered as a Wonder of the World. The temple was dedicated to the Hindu Lord Shiva and was carved out of a single rock. Yes, you read that right, a single huge rock. What’s even more mind-boggling is this architectural masterpiece was constructed more than 1300 years ago, proving that new doesn’t always mean more advanced. According to archeologists, it should have taken centuries of human labor to finish the temple, but it was actually built in less than 18 years.

Scroll down to see this magical structural relic, and don’t forget to tell us what you think in the comments!

Damn! The beauty and Majesty we are capable of. And yet we waste it on war, guns, a slew of things to kill each other. Bigotry and hate.
