up the sandstone hill and you will come across cave 2, which is
dedicated to Vishnu. It is indeed a sight to
see Vishnu depicted as a dwarf or Trivikrama of grand dimensions
with one foot mastering the Earth and the other the sky. Another
form of Vishnu portrayed here is in Varaha or as a boar. Then
there is a frieze depicting Vishnu as Lord Krishna, Vishnu riding
the Garnda & lotus surrounded by sixteen fishes.
The facade of the third cave is nearly 70 feet wide, and the sheer
artistry and sculptural genius makes this cave the highlight of
Deccani art. It gives a virtual insight into the art and culture
of the 6th century like costumes, jewelry hairstyle lifestyle
etc. The other attractions to be looked out for in this cave are
the images of Vishnu with a serpent, Vishnu as Narasimha (Vishnu
as Man-Lion) Varaha, Harihara (Shiva Vishnu) and Vishnu as Trivikrama.
