Well you are almost the king of the castle and have a great view. This room was totally destroyed by erosion. The stairway leading to this level was eroded. Bedroom was destroyed then reconstructed; this room was most likely the living area.
The walls were cleaned by using a hammer resembling a geologist’s pick. The rough surfaces help the oxidization process which allows the stone to harden. A smooth surface would tend to collect moisture and cause flaking. This is the way the walls were done hundreds of years ago. You will also notice holes bored into ceilings of all bathrooms and some other rooms. These enhance air circulation which is necessary in preservation of the cave surfaces. Without ventilation moisture would collect and the walls and ceilings would deteriorate. The bed, desk, closet doors and windows frames were made on site. Stones were also sized on site
