    Are these wasps or giant honey bees? Last week I read it was the latter.

    why cant they be cleansed from the site? They may have been "groomed" by the kings for the defense purposes but the rock is no longer a citadel of Kashyap but a tourist destination where 100's of people including women and children visit. It is ridiculous not to chase them away for historical or mythical reasons.
