A big elephant decorated in a multicolored way lies down to await the couple.

A small legendary world

On the wall in south, there is a monumental picture on which characters of the legends, the soft and very delicate sculptures with the small details, though large or small, all are well polished by the Creator. In the cave's center, the four big pillars support the celestial palate. From foot until the top, the pillars are carved with strange reliefs like the birds, the fish, the scenes of the daily life, the flowers... On the wall in north, it is the scene of the fairies who dance and who sing to congratulate a marriage. Under the cave's vault, the multicolored stalagmites are suspended like a large stone curtain. The blows of drums in somewhere are as in an old village festival village. It is the sound of the winds which blows in the foliages. Under the high cave's vault, the blue stalagmites as pearls give us the imagination of an Eden.
