Do not miss this attraction...the view is fantastic from the top of the temple. Keep an eye on the monkeys! The fishing village below is worth a wander around too.

Be aware the temple is high up a mountain and if you want to see inside you have to climb a further long stairway. Not for the invalid or elderly. One of the main attractions are the free roaming monkeys which are a wonderful attraction as well as the pleasant mountain top views.

The view from the top of the hill is amazing and there are many nice photo opportunities at the top of the hill of Hua Him and the Ocean. We decided... More

When the phrase "cheeky monkey" was first formed, I am sure it was after a visit to this temple. Don't leave anything on the ground, as it will be gone within seconds. While I was there a guy in an open pick up truck arrived, and the monkeys pounced on the open back and took everything before he had the... More

Temple itself nothing special but the area around it and the monkey mountain are great. Almost no tourists on a Saturday afternoon! You can feed the +200 monkeys.

It has a very good view of Hua Hin since it is on top of the hill. there's plenty of monkeys roaming around the hill but they are not aggressive to the visitors.
