Its such a shame that the place isn't well kept. It looks like everything is falling a part. I understad that it's an ancient place, however w some loving care, the place can sustain it's natural beauty

This is a massive temple complex. You can use the electric vehicle to reach the complex from the ticket complex. There are several courtyards and temples, lots of stairs to climb, and beautiful sculptures in the temples. Worth visiting.
