This is considered a unique balustrade, since the sculptured surface appears to depict a narrative scene, as yet unidentified, although at least one interpretation refers to a Jataka story in the three-part panel on the outside of the balustrade on the left side. The largest figures are of a lion at the center and another placing its forearms on the back of the other lion. The two frames above them include birds and human figures. The frames flanking the central frames include both human and animal figures. A similar arrangement on the outside of the balustrade at the left depicts different configurations of both animals and humans and also has a carving of three flowers at the center above the frames. This balustrade is described by T. G. Kulatunge.
