This is a place that is a must to visit. The mural paintings tell sins of women and their lovers. The most famous mural painting is the one showing a man whispering to a woman. Enjoy!

Great frescos telling stories of times gone by. Nice 4 faced Buddha and other deities abound. Clean area and not too much commercialisation.
