    Hi. There are two areas where you can see the same temples that you've seen online -- along the stairs and at the top. There are 3,745 steps that lead to the top. But the impressive thing here is that they stop any cameras to enter the main temple area, so much of the beautifully engraved temples (large and small) cannot be seen unless you really go there.

    As you keep climbing higher, the views get better. However to get close to the actual domes of the temples, which is one of the best memories of the trip I have, in the main temple area take a stairway from the right-hand of the backside. It's pretty distinct. Or just ask someone.
