“Very cool site!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

This place is very interesting b/c of the astronomical history. It has the largest Sundial in the world. It is quite fascinating to see and contemplate the design and how it all works. An astronomer or mathematician would be in heaven here.

“amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Our guide MADE this for us. His knowledge of the history was 100%, but the way he was able to describe and explain the science made it very special. Unbelievable way to enjoy a hobby, even for a king!

“Remarkable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

These are remarkable structures considering how old they are. They're also impressively accurate, and to appreciate that a guide is necessitated, otherwise it would just be a whole bunch of strange looking things in a walled courtyard. I think it might not be so great for kids (especially the audio guide) as the explanations can be a bit hard to follow, and without an explanation these structures are nothing.

“Fun place to spend half an hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This place is not only interesting architecturally but is awe inspiring as well. The technology, albeit ancient, is very sophisticated. Definitely recommend seeing this, even if it is for a short time.
