After the initial shock of it being a bit like a building site in places and the temple albeit beautiful, the monk who was playing some sort of 'mortal combat/candy crush/ grand...' could have cleaned the place people were still worshipping in.

It was nice to visit there in my day off, quite and away from crowded area. Moreover, there're many kinds of capsule herb selling to treat or cure out health, that's effective.

Good way to spend an hour or two wandering around the temple and surrounding gardens. Just outside the city centre.

For the first time during our Holiday I felt accustomed to the Thai Buddhist way of belief and daily life. Huay Mongkol Temple is SPECTACULAR - a MUST do and a MUST see.... More

Do not use the taxi service to go here. Go to hua hin train station and get the bus there and back 40bht and you can spend however long you want the bus runs back and forth every hour it also stops at the floating market. The Big Buddha is very impressive and set in lovely grounds, it lacked history... More
