Some places you visit hold a very special place in your memory and you don't have to rely on digital images to remember them. I was initially disappointed as we were not allowed to take cameras inside but by the time I came out I knew this was an experience no picture could do justice to, you have to be... More

It was very hard for me to leave this place. Marble carving is so good that you don't feel to stop staring. Visit this place with leisure time if you want to enjoy the art-work there. One thing I missed is no camera/phone allowed to capture the great work. You have to deposit all your stuff outside. And this place... More

I liked the fabulous carvings which you cannot believe are a 1000 year old. The build and complex as such is not that great. Try to get hold of a person who knows the local history.

Worth a visit; sad they do not allow cameras to capture the images. Amazing architecture though and a good and quick 1-2 hr visit is worth the time

Its a group of 5 temples in one compound. Has some stunning stone work inside it. Locations has ample parking space. You are not allowed to take your mobiles or camera inside, so deposit it in the counter outside (chargeable). Should not take more than an hour to visit the temple.

My daughter did not want to go to temples, but loved the sculpture and carving here. One cannot take any bags, cameras, leather items inside, and these need to be deposited at a counter before entering. Pretty efficient system but be prepared for crowds and lines if you go during the peak season.
