Went here thinking it was going to be a nice climb to the top to see something special. Ok the views are great but other than that, there’s a bunch of monkeys playing around in derelict buildings, it’s a real shame they haven’t looked after...More

The view is really the best part of this temple but exploring the temple itself and the murals around are pretty interesting also. The walk up to the top view point is quite steep but very worth doing. Watch out for the monkeys around the...More
