It is said that guides used to tell tourists that the area just beyond the man-made stairs was haunted by evil spirits. If a person were to go back there the torch or candle they carried would blow out. It is believed this room was actually mined and those mining did not want tourists to know what they were doing. The red lighting was added to enhance the idea of evil spirits.
