Most of this site's treasures have been carted away to museums, leaving---with few exceptions--only dirt-colored walls and floors. You pretty much have to go with a guide to learn anything, and there are many areas where you cannot walk.

This place was beautiful! They've done a very good job maintaining the sight. Be prepared for a lot of walking as the sight is vast!
