India: Ellora

Kailash Temple, Ellora
The result of at least 100 years of intense labour, the Kailash Temple at Ellora is simply breathtaking

The main attractions around Aurangabad are the cave temple complexes of Ellora and Ajanta, and for them it's worth putting up with any amount of social asphyxiation. I spent a whole day at Ellora, and it's simply magnificent.
