Neatly maintained park. Water... More

I absolutely recommend to visit the site. Get ready in advance - take a waterbottle and protect your head from sun. The entrance fee is really low for what you can see inside.Also there is plenty of multilingual guides.

The horses, the wheels, the roof of the chariot are all carved beautifully. The designs are intricate and very detailed. I developed great admiration and appreciation for the builders of this great monument centuries... More
