Without listening to the story of the monument, you will never find it interesting. The monument is located in a small area and has some Hailogriffic writings.

Not worth stopping for, unless you want a picture with a wall I suppose. It is elaborately decorated with ancient temple ritual scene but that's all there is to it.

That was a temple in the past but now only 1 wall remains. You will pass by it anyway so you can take only a look and continue your tour.
