This is definitely a place to visit while you're in the area. The grounds provide some fascinating insight to the significance of this place over many centuries. Efforts to preserve and restore parts of the area are needed. Parts of the buildings were crumbing right at our feet. There was the appearance of some botched concrete work to restore other areas. Significant portions of the grounds were closed for excavation. There are terrific views of other nearby sites from the southern walls. A visit toward the end of the day allows you to enjoy the setting sun. Very nice.
