At only a few dollars entry worth a stop for 45mins. Don’t buy a sarong on the way in as they are provided free of charge with entry. The cave is ornate from the outside and that’s about it.

This was a hit with the whole family despite it raining at the time of our visit. The temple grounds are very pretty and the cave itself is very impressive - take your camera for a photo in the opening

Again another of our temples 15000 each to visit but with all the temples they supply you with a sarong. We had a local guide tipped him 10000.

This place is amazing but I dont like when local people propose to show a few things and then charged us for that. You can make an excursion without any help there. Nice garden, good photos.
