Cave 33 is called Jagannath Sabha, because some Hindus thought one of the carvings resembled Lord Jagannath. This is a very interesting misnomer because Jagannath itself is not a Hindu God. The name comes from a tribal deity called jaganata, originally from the state of Odisha. This tribal deity also gave us the English word "Juggernaut" , meaning an unstoppable force.
Cave 34 is much smaller than any other cave in Ellora. This was the last cave to be carved, and has an unfinished look. Cave 33 and 34 are interconnected by a small passage.
