Worth to see, specially with kids. Interesting place. A lot of monkeys around so take care of your belongings. If you want to buy some snacks or drinks do it in first shops after the station. Otherwise price gets dubble.

Interesting temple set inside the caves. Lots of it is under construction/renos so it takes away from the whole atmosphere a bit. Be aware of the monkeys!! They are very bold and will definitely steal food from you. Please, please don't feed them. You only...More

You can take your time and you can also take a brick up to the top. Best time to go early in morning so not so hot and no monkeys.
