The façade of this cave is a relief of menacing creatures and demons carved into the rock. The primary figure is thought to be an elephant, hence the nickname Elephant Cave. A pool, excavated in 1954, features five out of supposedly seven statues depicting Hindu angels holding vases that act as waterspouts. This site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List on October 19, 1995, in the Cultural category.
