Dating to the 10th century, B5 was where sacred objects and books is the various rituals were stored. The roof was boat-shaped though the bow and stern have long since fallen away. Unlike the kalan (B1), B5 did have windows. The carvings outside show hints of ancient marvels - elephants and Gajalaksmi, Goddess of Prosperity.
