We were the only group visiting on a sunny afternoon. Ruins set against a majestic backdrop. The full site is big but only a small area is open to visitors. As it was previously abused by tourists, now tourists are confined to boardwalk. Still conjures...More

The place is UNESCO site. You can wander around this abandoned city which is built between two rivers and cut out of the rock. There are explanations and a viewing platform. It is a little gem

We visited on our own and pretty much had it to ourselves. There's not a lot to see, but it's impressive that there after still some walls and a stupa standing. The landscape is very barren, which must have made for tough living. There is...More

Wonderful place, completely under visited, we were mostly alone. Best with a guide, but easy to appreciate even with little information. Built on a grand scale.

This site is definitely worth the trip. Only the West Temple site is open, as research is still being conducted at the larger East Temple. The West Temple is stunning and under-visited. We were alone and able to appreciate the ruins against the backdrop of...More
