Good for offering to monks and temples and the temple is expanding by buying a big piece of land beside. Good time to donate for merits. Also selling some hand-made Buddha tablet at a shop within the temple ground. There is a nice statue of Rama V beside the giant monk statue. Also go take a look at the lake... More

We went to see the Huay Mongkol Temple after visiting the Hutsadin Elephant Foundation as they both in the same direction away from Hua Hin town centre. It is a very important spiritual site for Buddhists. The detail and size of the structure is immense. We didn't stay for long, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

You do not have to be religious... More

I'm not really into these things [religion in any form] and don't get it! I'd little choice as I was the lone minority in the vehicle that would happily miss such. No insult intended and you're into such things go for it. For me, it was an hour of my life that I'll never see again visiting a very large... More

After a morning with the elephants we went onto the temple. It was very interesting to see an alternative ceremony. It was well presented and very well attended.

Took a local taxi to the Temple, had plenty of time to look around and take as many photos as we wanted, statue of the Monk and wooden carved elephants were amazing. Joined our Thai hosts in walking 3x round the carved wooden elephants. Bought a lovely inexpensive Buddha necklace at one of the stalls, which has raised comments from... More
