Wonderful place that's worth the visit, kinda underwhelming after knowing that was rebuilt (not the original construction). Still, plenty of artwork and stone carving to admire. Note: if you have a student card bring it, all prices are 50% cheaper on ticket offices.

Very impressive archaeological site. Lots of visitors, but the temple is huge. Tight security (site of 1997 terrorist attack). Budget 1 to 1.5 hour for visit.
