“excellent archeology”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

we were dropped off at the top of the valley and walked slowly down with our guide telling us about each temple and the history. Very pleasant in the late september sunshine.

“Very large archeological park with very well preserved temples etc.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The park is really something. The main problem is the amount of very persistent persons trying to sell you souvenirs and all kind of nonsense, and they are stubborn and annoying.

“Magical view in the night !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

I was lucky to be able to take a night visit in the Valley of Temples, after 8 pm,a beautiful autumn night,with many people around admiring the same scenario :the temples very well lighted,and a serenity and magic atmosphere all around !
I think is better to see them in the night,is less crowded and there for is quiet and you can enjoy peacefully all around.Not to mention that the parking was very easy,cheap,in the proximity of the entrance.
Nice experience !
