It is a UNESCO World Heritage site ans quite right to.
There are a huge ensemble of buildings with unique architecture, which was built over three centuries, is considered holy and revered place for pilgrims
It is very easy to navigate and is well looked after, there will always be a few people trying to sell you things but not too much hassle.
There are also some of the buildings being used by local craftsmen which is a great site to see,
Enjoyed our little stop off and also got some things from the local market outside.
