I was put off by the obvious disregard for the dress code observed by the people visiting the temple. Most religious places across the world have strict dress codes. I would blame the temple authorities for not enforcing it and pandering to tourism.

We visited here as part of an organised tour. What an amazing place. It was so calm and peaceful. The statues at the entrance are huge - you don't really get the perspective from the photos. Definitely somewhere to visit just avoid the loos!!!!
