Amazing place for All to go visit and see what the elements of true life are and how they are transcended from the gods Amazing quality of sculpture and artwork. Need only an hour or two. Tickets are available directly at the door. Great place.

This temple was much bigger than we expected with so much to take in. We were there for 3 hours and could have stayed longer.

You need to buy a ticket to get anywhere near it , the building it self is about 500 meters away from the entrance and can't be seen.
