Enormous artifacts. We went just after dawn..which I was glad, for my first time going. I got to read and absorb in peace. Just to look at in the quiet and to be amazed was a special experience.

It felt unorganized and a bit fairly spaced apart. The statues are incredible and huge. At the time we visited they were under construction to erect another sculpture area so it was a bit spread out.

They are open until dusk. I believe they give tours on Fridays but best to call in advance.
