Close-up of one of four figures of lively elephants in bas-relief; they are found on the cleft of rock abutting the pond. They may have been the work of the same artist or artists who sculpted the elephant relief in the Ranmasu Uyana (Goldfish Park). With raised trunk, this elephant is depicted pouring water over itself; a lotus bud rising from the water, also in bas-relief, is visible below the elephant's tusk. Scholars have noted that the elephant figures are similar to those in South Indian art of the Pallava period (i.e., 7th century).
