Aum Nama: Shivayae…,
Thanks for the effort.

My humble suggestion is to show a meditating girl at Paataal Bhubneshwar temple instead of a scared girl. There is nothing to be afraid of in the cave. And also to call it the Paataal Bhubneshwar Temple instead of cave.

It is a wonderful place to meditate.
Aum Nama: Shivayae…
