“huge open structure”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This one is the biggest at the VOT but you can walk in and around this huge construction undertaken 2 millinea ago. You have to use a lot of your imagination.

Am glad we saw this in October when weather was much more cooperative and less tiring.

“Must have been huge in its day!”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

The temple is described as one of the biggest ever built, and you get the feeling that it was huge.The recorded information was invaluable in describing what we were looking at.
