Worth visiting on way to Waterfall or Vineyard. Enormous representation of Huay Mongol, and good facilities. Interesting lake and gardens.

very popular especially with Thai people for its gigantic statue of one of Thailand's most famous monks. This monk lived some 400 yrs ago in Southern Thailand. It was said that he could turn salted water into fresh, drinkable water on many occasions. Surprisingly peaceful and serene place well worth a visit.

We visit the Tempel many times, when we get friends over for a holiday we always visit the. We are not Buddhist but when we are visiting the Temple we are always impressed and get a happy feeling. Jan and Ria from Hua hin.

If you like temples then it's probably an ok place to visit. Otherwise, if you've seen any temples in Thailand there's really not that much different here. There's a huge statue which is worth seeing for 5 minutes. Other than that there's nothing much here for typical foreigners that aren't into wandering around temples. Worth seeing if you've got nothing... More

We asked our local taxi driver to take us here, he charged us about 400bahts, wonderful scenery on our way, just how I expected Thailand to look, lots of pineapple plantations, rice fields and little villages. There was no entry fee to go and see this huge Buddha, a word of advice though go early in the day if you... More

Wide area of temple with huge black Buddha statue, about 20km from Huahin. The Buddha is very well known in the South of Thailand for converting sea water to plain water by foot. Lots of Buddhist especially in the South pay respect to this Buddha.

Not the usual Buddha. Solemn and grey. Good atmosphere. No selling hassles.Worth a visit.Good photograph opportunities.Nice features.There is an unobtrusive photographer who catches you unawares in natural mode.

Really nice temple with a lot of local people there. The statues are really beautiful. It's not to far from Hua hin, and easy to go there. A must do

Took the baht bus from hotel to railway station, (which is worth a walk around). Then a cab from railway to BB. The Wat Huay Mongkol is worth the trip. The cab was worth the price as it gave me the chnace on the trip there and back to stop and take pictures. The temple itself is impressive, well maintained... More

Worth a visit temple in the hills to see the large seated monk. Below are a couple of really nice wood elephants. Also some other building worth seeing in the complex.
