You need 60-90 minutes to explore this. There are lots of artistic depictions, and it's well-preserved. For a small tip, you can probably get access to off limits areas, especially in the summer when there are fewer tourists. Definitely put it on your list for...More

This is a great temple to visit on the West Bank. The front entrance is incredibly impressive and the underside of the roofs was really nice. We were the only family visiting when we arrived which was really nice and added to the ambiance.
