Inscriptions
  1. Inscribed on both sides; most of the letters are well preserved.

The inscriptions are on a vertical rock face which appears to have been the back wall of an artificial cave that has been eroded away by water. Dimensions are not reported. Local tradition says that the place was the cave of Virūpākṣa ṛṣi and the inscriptions were engraved by devas in three different kinds of devākṣaras and contain sacred teachings.
