We saw this temple during a tour of the temple plains and found this particular temple to be quite impressive. When in the area, don't miss this particular temple as it is an rare rose among many beautiful rose buds.

fantastic temple. the murals and frescos are breathtaking,esp. when you think how old they are. I could have used more time exploring it and a camera that would capture the colors of the murals. Mine was good but it is nicer to have great lenses....More

It is a larger sized one, but the hallways smell of urine and people maybe living in it? You walk over the dirt with bare feet.

Unfortunately the only site offering this hotel is Asiatravel so I would only suggest that you try and find a local travel agent that might be able to help. Sorry I can be of more help.
