Description: This cave is reached by way of a staircase which leads to a stylobate, decorated with dwarfs and grotesque figures. The cave is relatively large, measuring (not counting the galleries of each aisle) about 50 feet each side. It contains twelve columns which form a good example of the new style. The galleries lead through four pillars to seated Buddha statues. These pillars belong to the "foliage-vase" type. The cave seems to have been the main sanctuary of the Buddhist group of caves.
