... of the peace - we hardly saw any people as we drove around, stopping at temples that caught our eye. It was a great day, which ended with a cheap dinner and an early night after our early start. On the second day we got off the beaten track and found some incredible untouched areas, and climbed up forgotten stairways and peered through abandoned corridors. There were smattering of tourist tat which was a bit of a shame, if to ...

Our next stop was the nearby North Guni, a temple we had all to ourselves and with a viewing platform 3 stories up that we could climb to. A favorite!
