CHIANG RAI, 13th August 2018 (NNT) – The restoration of Tham Luang cave in Mae Sai district, Chiang Rai province, is now 40 percent complete. 

The cave has been temporarily closed to visitors, following the successful rescue of 12 boys and their football coach. People can still visit the national park to worship the Jao Mae Nang Non shrine. 

The conservation area 15 management office’s director, Kamolchai Kotcha, said Tham Luang cave is still being closed to all visitors, as the water level inside the cave remains high. 

Mr. Kamolchai said the water level in the cave would normally be 50 to 70 centimeters deep. However, excavations and some works in the rescue mission have made some flooded areas inside the cave now become three to four meters deep. 

Related agencies are now using heavy machines to restore the area damaged from the rescue missions by paving pebbles, restoring grass floors, and adjusting the waterway. The entire restoration works are now 40 percent complete, with the water inside the cave to remain in emerald color even after the restoration works. 

The cave, which is now positioned to be another tourism attraction of Thailand, will be thoroughly inspected, and will have to get approval for opening from the Department of National Park, Wildlife, and Plant Conservation before being re-opened to the general public. 

Meanwhile, many people have continued to visit the cave site to pay their respects to the Jao Mae Nang Nong shrine. Meanwhile, the construction of a museum on the rescue operations of the Wild Boar football team, and a monument honoring a former Navy SEAL Saman Gunan, who died during the operations, are now underway. The constructions would take about four months to complete.

A word missing above: 'many gullible people':

 

"Tham Luang Cave is a shrine to Jao Mae Nang Non, a mythical princess whose spirit is said to live there."

mythical: 1. Of or existing in myth: the mythical unicorn. 2. Imaginary; fictitious. 3. often mythic Of, relating to, or having the nature of a myth.

Many people have had visited the so-called "crying virgin Mary" and the "bleeding Jesus"  are these people "gullible" too.

A certain mysterious cave outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico had a pit filled with "Blessed" sand and mysteriously kept filling "itself" each night. When the Parish Priest could no longer carry the "Blessed" sand due to his age, the mystery was no longer a mystery and the donations ceased. God giveth and God taketh away.
