Ekvira Devi Temple

These are the ancient Buddhist caves. They are in existence since 160 BC  and are suppose to be the biggest among the "Chaitya Caves".
This temple of Chandraseniya Kayastha Prabhu (C.K.P.) and Fisher communities is thronged by devotees during Navratri and Chaitra. The exquisite carvings created by human hands leaves one spellbound. At the entrance, there is a small temple of Ekvira Devi. At the entrance, there are lion pillars and inside huge elephant forms are carved on which there are different forms representing Gautam Buddha.

Other carvings include dancing pairs with windows every where. The entrance gat is in the shape of a "Peepal" leaf through which one enters the huge Chaitya griha or hall. This large hall is full of stone pillars, which are carved with elephant and human forms.

The roof is high and semicircular. The pillars are surprisingly very smooth. There are many resting rooms around here. These rooms carved in the rocks are calm and ideal for meditation.
