It is sad to see the remains of this once beautiful and extensive religious site, but wandering around those parts which are safe, it is clear to see how magnificent it was. The ruins are set in a cool valley and the sound of running water is never far away.
Some areas have small museum-like areas with small numbers of stone artifacts carefully placed inside, and outside there are rows of base plates from columns, some of which lie close by. In one room there are two shells to remind visitors of the cause of much of the damage - warfare in the Vietnam War. Craters still exist where bombs fell - most are filled with water.
Past restoration was carried out with cement but today's plan is to reconstruct with a mortar which is all but invisible so that the structures look as they did.
An amazing and peaceful place (except for the guides speaking every language known to man!!).
