(Roman Temple 52 km)

    Turn left at Yanta village and after two kilometers take the left fork. Continue for half a kilometer then make a sharp right turn, proceeding for fifteen kilometers. The drive takes you past dramatic views of craggy peaks resembling an Arizona landscape.

    The village has grown close to the temple, so don't judge by first appearances; the full extent of the site will soon be evident. If you have time, a walk around the immediate area will reveal the villagers' creative re-use of temple elements.
    The large temple has fine stonework and much remains to be admired. Molded entrances frame the doorway. The stairway has vanished as well as most of the porch, but several well-preserved stretches of enclosure wall can still be seen southeast of the temple.
