The atmosphere was special and interesting. A lot of places to visit and take pictures of. Many nice people to talk to or just take a selfie with a monk as I did. The view was very good from the top.

This is one of the most central sites in South Asia. It is a beautiful pyramid with dozens of Buddha figures. Get there for the sunrise tours.
