We managed to make our way through the initial crowds, and turn right, down the path towards the Buddhist caves. Here, the crowds disappeared and caves were cool and quiet.
These caves make you feel seriously ZEN.
Lighting was tricky in the caves and flash photography is not allowed. We did our best with our little point & click camera, but our skills are sadly lacking.
The Hindu temples were a stark contrast from the Buddhist caves. Active worshipers crowded the areas, which were much more ornately carved but also more damaged.
