Not a big place - you can see it in a few minutes. Interesting but very dark shrine. Good to o down the steps and see the old Buddhist temple
The blend of Hindu and Buddhism coupled with the age and place in world history make for a very interesting place. Try and get there between coaches and take a sarong as it is a sacred place.
