"I imagine the inside of the temple has plenty of shade" replies Akash. He then shades his eyes and looks up at the cliffs, before stringing his bow. "Besides, there could be hungry wildlife around and we'd never see them on those ledges."
He ponders this a moment. "Does the desert have giant cats?"
With a shrug of his own, Akash replied "I was simply wondering. It seems like the kind of situation they would like - lie in wait, then pounce from above." He glanced back at Mysty, who still fanning an overheated owl. "Hoot would be nothing but a snack."
Akash looked at Mysty as if she were crazy... which she might well be. "Wait until night? Waiting until it gets a little cooler, maybe, but night? I appreciate your confidence, but would rather not explore an unknown and probably deadly temple when it's DARK."
"Sure, no light except for the windows and the gaping holes in the age-ravaged ceiling. This place was built for people that would lie out under the sun to die - there's probably plenty of open courtyards at least."
