Inside the cave, many underground streams flow from different directions. A large number of stalactites and others have formed due to water seeped and dropped from rocks and limestone. Some pilgrims pick up this water because they believe that it can cure skin-diseases and sore eyes. Outside, there is a three layer waterfall which a few people know, will take visitors a few minute to reach from the cave.
