Inscriptions
  1. Seven lines of text are extant. The first 2-3 characters of each line is lost. Much of the seventh line is also broken away along with lines 8 and 9, but these were extant and had been copied when the inscription was first noticed by scholars.

The cave is on the southern side of Barābar Hill. Its façade is sculpted to resemble the front of a wooden candraśālā hut. For further details of the monument see #ASIR_01:46-47. Anantavarman's inscription (%IN00152) is on the recessed part of the façade, on a smooth vertical wall just above the doorway.
