The detail on this temple is amazing. Not a lot of people early in the day. So many amazing details. It is an interesting drive to get here as well. Probably my favorite temple we visited.

I think you have the option to do more than one temple all together. Check on line... The ticket that I got was around U$D 62 y was for more than 3 temples.
