“As of 2013, Archaeological Survey of India has restored most parts of the temple complex some of which have been constructed from scratch.[3] Wooden walkways, platforms and roped railings have been put in place around the site to protect the monument from further damages due to the large tourist inflow.” (Source: Wikipedia)

If I remember correctly, this temple was once used as a backdrop for a move ... perhaps one of the Indiana Jones films?
