This is regarded as the audience hall belonging to the royal city complex of King Kasyapa. This is on a flattened summit of a boulder, a naturally split section of rock in front. The main seat at the southern end is carved out of the living rock and the others on either side, though carved out of the living rock have certain parts made separately and fitted on to them. The small square holes in the surface of the flattened boulder suggest that there had been a roof to this hall supported by timber pillars.
