Nice experience, it’s better if you have a local guide to explain the beautiful Hindu history. Be careful with the monkeys, make sure you don’t bring food in your bag because they try to steal it!

Great view over the cliff and nothing else. You can't go inside, and you don't see anything from the temple.
