I though this cave pretty amazing to be carved out like a Cathedral ceiling. Many of the very old cathedrals in Europe have this type of roof sometimes carved from sandstone and othertimes made from wood. (in Holland).Too see this in India carved within a cave was quite astonishing. So many questions?
