  • The largest of the tombs sites. Many buildings and areas to explore with historical artefacts. A lovely area to sit and think and get out of the rain. WC's clearly signed at entrance and far side of site. Street food outside and souvenirs.
  • Very small, nothing really going on here. Can take it all in within five minutes. Dark and unattended. I think the people who reviewed this tomb are mistaking it for the other nearby tomb.
  • The road home. We strongly niewartościowe in the rainy day. In Sun worth due to the cool photos views from the top.
