The statues are stunning. Plan to spend a few hours to absorb the culture.

An amazing place to visit, but beware even people with an official tourist guide uniform on do not tell the truth, visitors use your common sense! If you feel unsure then you probably have good reason too.

The temple is beautiful, but the Buddha is small and unimpressive compared to the elaborate decor of the rest of the temple.
