We were in the area and decided to check this out and it was rather different than the other shrines and monuments I guess because it is dedicated to the God of War. A guide would probably be necessary for this place as we didn’t...More

We visited on a festival day and witnessed a wedding. I would suggest spring or early-November. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, it requires walking. Many bathrooms throughout.
