Excellent On-Site Companion Feb 18, 2004
I foung this book very useful at each of the temples. Its small size makes it easy to carry. The maps and elevations are quite useful for quick orientation. The text information is a ittle too scant for in-depth understanding, however. I recommend reading a description in a larger travel guide before visiting the site, and then using this book while at the site.
