A long flight of stone steps leading to a large cave is situated in the site and the images of a reclining Buddha and a seated Buddha are found in it. The other image found in the cave is believed to be a statue of king Dutugemunu. North of the cave are some smaller caves with inscriptions in  Brahmi characters.
