At last we reached. A small sign board of Archaeological Survey of India showing the status of the protected monument was all that we could see as we proceeded inside. I was thinking this time we got an opportunity to compare the monolithic rock cut temple of Masroor (the one we were going to visit ) with Ellora Kailash Temple, Maharashtra (that we visited in 2015!). Both the temples, Masroor and Ellora Kailasa temple were cut out from a single huge rock i.e., monolithic. Kailash temple was built in 8th century by the Rashtrakoota ruler Krishna I and it was built in Dravidian style.
In this style, the main temple tower (Vimana) is pyramidical. There are porches or entrances (Mandapas) before the door leading to the main cell and also Gopurams or entrance gateway in the front wall.
