Famous due to stone carvings. Contains two dwelling cells with low ceilings and a verandah with a bench in front. Famous relief of Ganesh on the rear wall was carved somewhat later - in this later time there were added large sculptures of two elephants in front of cave. Interesting scene with people in action, inscription. The carvings tell the story of the elopement of Bassavadatta, Princess of Ujjayini, with King Udayan of Kausambi in the company of Vasantaka.

Contains also a carving with Jain Tirthankara.
