Oh yes, it is just a single huge rock and what  is even more mind-boggling is the fact that this architectural masterpiece was constructed more than 1300 years ago. According to archaeologists, it should have taken centuries of human labor to finish the temple to its present form but in reality this wonder was built in less than 18 years.
