However, before we got there, we had another stop to make....
At a CROCODILE FARM!!!
It was a definite learning experience .... though I have to admit a guilty enjoyment seeing the crocodiles being fed.
The real point of the trip was the ruins though.
We headed to the town which is famous for rock carvings which continue to this day.
Apparently, the ruins are a famous early example of Dravidian architecture.
Walking through the ruins (which were amazing), I couldn't help but think back to when I went to Ankhor Wat over 5 years ago. The climate, the setting and the ruins .... it almost felt like being in the same place.
Sudi was impressed by it all, but less impressed when he discovered my not so secret desire to "go everywhere".
After walking around the ruins on the hill, we made our way towards the famous "Shore Temple". This is the only temple of seven known that remains uncovered by the ocean.
