It is clearly written on signboard near the temple that this is the Sanctum of Goddess Jogini and it is a totally silent zone, hence shouting, yelling, and digging of soil and even entry with leather shoes are strictly prohibited here. Even the flowing water, each and every stone and boulder under and around the waterfall is scared. This is a meditation area and you can find lots of people meditating here.
