The forth chamber is the largest and it is called the "Music Chamber” due to its acoustic effects. The Central Bijambare Cave is home to bats and crickets and some other species. There are numerous findings from the Ice Age (animal skeletons) and Paleolite (cave men). A hundred meters from the Central Cave, you will come across the Lower Bijambare Cave, where the Brodic Crook sinks.
