Better time is to go around 16:00 when most of the tourist groups have already been there and the sun is not too bad. It takes 1 hour to see all and take pictures, some people may take 1:30, but more than that you must really be studying it...

What are these guys on? This is a landmark of monumental importance where time stands still. I think the Trip Advisor team should exercise discretion for such cases.

A great historical place. It is an interesting place for children and youth with more educational information.

Under constant renovation, but truly inspiring that people all those years ago would build something so complex, and how generations after tried to destroy it. And its still standing.

It's stunning to see this, there is a lot of scaffolding and workmen all over the site. But you just forget about them and gaze in awe at the beauty of the building and how long it's been there.
