|Gradually, the story of the remarkable power of the crevice
spread in the region. The people of the area started flocking to this crevice
to take advice regarding their problems and difficulties. They also took
advice regarding future events. Some curious people who went inside the
crevice never returned. To prevent such accidents, a woman was deputed there.
She also undertook the task of predicting the future of people who wished
to know about it. A temple was erected on the site and a wooden platform
was provided to that woman so that she was protected from the vagaries of
the weather and had a place to sit on and do her work. Steam came out of
the crevice as the woman (priestess) made predictions. She was completely
enveloped by the steam coming out of the crevice. The platform on which
the priestess sat was supported by three pillars.
