Vapiyaka cave

This is one among the exemplaries of ancient engineering. They cut the... rock like butter using socalled primitive tools. They made the rough stone surface to shine like glass with "primitive tools".
The name "Vapiyaka" is derived from sanskrit word "Vapi(meaning well)" which means cave of well.
