Unfinished Cave - Ajanta Caves (India)

For me, this unfinished temple was the most amazing sight at the "Ajanta Caves" sight.­ It really gave an idea of the enormous work that was needed to carve each temple using very basic tools, and of the process involved (i.­e.­ in what order the digging and carving was performed).­

Also impressive to see such a huge project stopped in the middle and unfinished, probably due to some calamity (war, drought, or epidemic) and never finished.­
