Wanted to see the place at sunset but our flight delay had us getting there later at dark and we simply loved slowly walking down the hill from one temple to the next. Romantic and spectacular historical setting

Just don't miss this site if you care anything about such ruins. The best I have seen. A memory for a lifetime. Advice: Pay to use the site golf-cart train -- it is a long walk between temples.

Well, we were there for about 3 hours. Personally I would start a bit earlier than 6.30 pm because there is quite a lot of walking to do and we needed time to go and look out over the landscape and so on.

There is a programme of modern artworks which recreate some of the atmosphere of the original, now lost.
