Lovely place to visit. Huge bath area with great tree roots around edges. Lots of history and great stories from our guide to help make it come alive.
How I would love to see this filled with water at Epiphany - yet even without water, the place was a great visit. Big trees and tree roots engulfing the walls added to the mystique of this wonderful place.
Again, a bit out of the way. But my o my is it gorgeous. Tree roots coming out form the walls and the most amazing surroundings.

This is a great place and there seems to be very little tourist here. We got a taxi to the place which was very cheap. Our ticket was the same as the one to visit the main place complex in the town. We were the only people here and the seating was still up from the end of christmas celebrations.... More
