A huge site. The museum is modern and has an interesting collection, and an emphasis on its educational role for local children.

This is a fabulous site where ancient ruins have been (and are still being) unearthed. The museum is modern and filled with many amazing artifacts which have been found during excavations. The grounds, however were quite overgrown and not well signposted. When we made our...More
