dc.descriptionThis cave is similar to the latest and most famous ones, like that of Elephanta. It consists of an immense, columned hall, measuring 165 feet each side. It is consecrated to Siva and was cut towards the beginning of the 7th century. The pillars, whose short shafts are mounted on rather high, rectangular bases, belong to the flat cushion type. The brackets are supported by dwar[ves]. Capitals and shafts of these columns are worked with delicate vertical sunk bands.
