The cave monastery is covered with 2000 year old murals depicting the life of Lord Budhha. The shrine houses 157 statues of Budhha in different sizes and postures including a 15 meter long reclining Buddha and vividly colored frescoes on the walls and ceiling, making this the largest antique painted surface in the world.
