Having visited the temples a few years ago, here are a couple of tips to make your experience more enjoyable. First, go during the monsoon season; it doesn't rain all the time but means there will be less tourists around. I found myself almost alone in one of the temples and it is a magical experience.
Second, watch a brief documentary about the history of the site beforehand - our hotel arranged a screening for us in the restaurant- so you can spend your time in the temples just absorbing the atmosphere.
