One of the nicer places to visit around the area. We like how it is free and you are able to explore and walk around the site. There are a number of temples with various carvings of gods, animals and human figures. The carved elephants are amazing. Krishna’s butterball (the big rock) is a great spot for a photo and there are plenty of stonemasons ready to sell you their goods. Be polite and they will show you around and share some of the place’s history.
It's a wonderful site to visit and there are lots of sight seeing to be done. The huge stone structure actually feels different than the other rocks there. There are actually 13 nearby spots to cover nearby and it would actually be nice if you carry umbrella or visit in the evening hours. It's really hot and humid but worth visiting.
