    Re: historic elements

    What do you mean by elements? I think it needs changing but am not sure what you mean.

    Not a teacher only a native.

    Do you mean the temples have historic features? I also think 'traditional' sounds better than historic, but that is just my opinion.

    You could say:
    'They are unique and full of history'
    'They are unique and have many historic features' - I suppose 'elements' could be used, however I think 'features' sounds better.

    The sentence I would use is:
    'They are unique and have many traditional features'.

    Like I said at the start, I'm not a teacher only a native.
