Anatomy was expected to form 30 degree angle all in all stairs as base . Firm hold of flourishing thick iron chains is must , though risk factor persists. Camera was strictly prohibited. Once pavement is through huge void ,where rocks of all shapes and sizes were harmonized awaits you. The formation inform of sarp (snake),throw oneself into the mouth and brooding oneself in drowsy tummy (as in void of cave) where every nook and cranny crammed with mysticism.

Guide enthralls you more with the plot ,making it more interesting.
The area where Pandavas(Character from the Indian Mythology) used to play chaupar (chess alike)in ancient times . Entry was barred due to lack of oxygen.
Another breakthrough on curiosity is the pavement or tunnel which routes all the way to rameshwaram(in South India) and used by hermits in past. Centuries and ages have passed from then.
Believing this is as true as existence of deities in existing religion, science could explain, not needed though.

Boomerang type of structure which is being used to practise bow and arrow still felt effective.

In state of “not sated” and “couldn’t ask for more” ….Chaukodi (another prepossessing town) was next.
