No one talks in the cave, they just pray...

@KriKridesign: Hi, Christine, thanks for your comment! Yes, I think I was very lucky to have been there because I happened to be there without expecting and planning anything. I could't believe when local people told me that there is a church at the upper part of the sandstone hill. Actually inside of the cave was a bit darker than this picture. And it was very silent except the voice of a priest reading the bible outside. Anyway, it was very sacred and secret place.
