Large temple. It was neat to walk through a space that had been partially restored and to also see how the jungle had taken over. Much less crowded than some of the other temples in the area.

You don't pay separately for each temple. You just need to get a pass to enter and then see whatever you want. I got a three day entry pass. $40 USD.
