Lovely gardens and temples. Pay once to enter then again for the temple itself. The area where the carvings are is excellent. There are other temples further past the main temple. I actually preferred these and did not require further entrance fees. They seem more peaceful and offer really nice views once you have made your way up to the top.

We had a guide with us, which always helps, and we thought this a beautiful and serene place to visit

This was a great experience. So much bigger than I would think it would be and so peaceful!
It shows you some historical information and also has great natural setting.

Very impresive temple buildings with very ornate and detailed artwork. The autoguide tape was very helpful. The whole area was very peaceful and the carvings on the hillside were quire inspiring. The temple really depicted the culture and tradition of the area.

The most discerning part is the multiple charging of entry fees to the complex...being a Buddhist temple, it should have more open reach to commoners rather than paying a huge price of the entry first and then to the temple again....a disappointing place for visitors looking for budget visits.
