We visited this site as part of our tour of the country. We were told that this temple was built in the 12th century. This Buddhist monastic complex is currently dilapidated due to faulty construction and poor quality of sandstone used in its buildings, and...More

Probably my favourite temple. We got there early and were only 2 of a few. The ruins are in good condition and with stunning Apsara dancers on all the walls. This was the first of all the temples and I would say going here first...More
