    This limestone cave was carved out over 80,000,000 years. The 600 meter length is filled with limestone stalactites and stalagmites, creating an enchanting scene. The largest attraction is the 30 meter high grotto, the Takine Palace, filled with limestone formations like the Crystal Curtain, grotto Coral, and more.
