Volcanic island - geology questions

I have an island which was formed by volcanic eruptions, a very long time ago. The island's volcano is long extinct. (I believe that it's a stratovolcano, although if this is unlikely, please let me know! It's not going to be mentioned in the story- I just like knowing all the details.)

Given the volcano's 'dead' state, would it be possible to carve a building (similar to the Indian rock-cut temples) out of the top of the cone, or would the rock be too fragile?

ETA: Thanks, folks! :-)
