One needs at least 3 days to appreciate the sights of this World Heritage Site. This is the focal point of the village and is more impressive from the outside. Visit Laxmi the elephant inside but better still go down to the river at about 8am and help her have her morning bath when you can get in to the river and give her scrub.
The best view of this temple complex is to walk up the stone hill, especially at sunset when the colors of the rocks and temple keep changing.
