Formation of the cave dates to the Carboniferous and Permian period of the Paleozoic era, about 230-340 million years ago. The floor of the cave is made from numerous shells pressed together. According to legend, a huge human skull was found here. This fact, as well as related prehistoric drawings, gave the cave its name Big-headed Ghost Cave.

70 rock paintings depict people, animals, and other strange creatures. The drawings are about 3000 years old. The authorship is attributed to a prehistoric tribe of sea Gypsies called Chan Chao Nam. Natural ingredients were used to make the paint, for example, rubber and animal blood were mixed to produce a red color.
