This temple was built in the 11th century when the kingdom was still of the Hindu religion. In the 16th century when the kingdom had converted to Buddhism a giant reclining buddah was added. In the early 70's a restoration project was started but abandoned in 1975 due to war during which the records were lost leaving essentially a giant jigsaw puzzle. The stairs to this and pretty much all the temples were ridiculously steep. We are also completely melting at this point. 100 degrees and about 90% humidity!
