I am a timid person, with some kind of phobia to narrow approach roads. so was not comfortable entering and leaving this place after being blessed. We have seen a senior person (Pujari ji) blessing the bhaktjan visiting the temple. not suggested for very senior people

This place is not suitable for senior citizens and fat people because we had to crawl through the passage to reach cave.
