We were so lucky to experience it with just my friends since most of the tourists focus on the well known temples which makes it crowded. We were able enjoy the area without any photobombers. Plus the tree structure at the back looked amazing.

A must see. fairly small but amazing. The trees are interfering the temples and give an overall impression of human powers vs nature i long term. You have to walk to end of the site where to seen the most picturesque sections.
