Gautam1really enjoyed our time visiting the temple. There is so much to see at this small location that it is easy to find the time passing quickly.You can visit on your own or with a site guide and learn about the history of this place.I have read in the reviews that some have found it crowded, but with a little planning ahead of time you can avoid the busier times durning the day. Also you an call ahead to see if they have any tours booked that day and if so when.Staff were poliet and very helpful.Even with the cheapest camera you will wind up with beautiful photos.
