The cave is divided into the front and back chambers. The outer wall surface of the front chamber is carved with wood-imitated roofs and eaves as well as four columns, thus resembling a three-room hall. On the wall of the front chamber are carved various niches and Buddhas. Its ceiling is decorated with caisson design. The top part of the north wall is decorated with a carved band of celestial musicians (Gandharva Devas). On the east, south and west sides, there are eight images of Yaksha, holding Konghou, Pipa and other musical instruments.
