The cave shrine faces east and has three chambers. Its internal dimensions are 32 feet in length, 15 feet in width, and 12.5 feet in height. There is the frontal projection of the main central chamber when compared to the two chambers which flank it. In the front façade of the cave are 10 horseshoe-shaped windows which are kudus on the cornice; these are unfinished carvings. The cornice also depicts carvings of five gable-roofed semi-complete shrines. The façade has four carved pillars and two pilasters at the ends, which are part of the façade and are carved in the traditional Pallava architectural style. The central chamber is fronted by a small mukhamandapa, which has two carved pillars with lion bases.
