Not knowing anything about the statue, it's not at all impressive. Other than the sheer size of the statue, there would be no other reason to visit it. None of the staff are helpful, none look like they want to be there. Save yourself the half hour ride out of Hua Hin and have a look at some pictures instead.

Huay Mongkol Temple is a holy ground for believers to worship. We went there after the railway station. You will get to see statue of Thailand’s most famous monks, Luang Phor Thuad. Worshipers come to pay respect, good luck, health, fortune and happiness.

Too many Buddhist temples with local legend monks history that locating out of the way from Hua-Hin beach. Unless you are a Buddhist then sucks it up and pray as your belief. Nothing exciting to see.

Brought my mom here to pray, as for me, I took a few photos. The statue was really big and high up. A lot of worshipers were coming and going paying their respect to Luang PuTuad. What I find unique was people sticking gold leaf onto the statues.

Although, not the biggest statue in thailand, but this is one impressive piece of art, very detailed, and makes you think there's a real peraon meditating. Have a look.

It is quite inside of Hua Hin. Need a car to go in. No entrance fee needed no parking fees needed. With GPS you are able to get to here.
