In facts, if you don't like monkeys, don't go! Many steps too climb, hot and smelly. Attractive Wat at the top The aggressive monkeys are a deterrent!

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.

The taxi driver told us that the head monk had been up to naughties with a lady. As a result the local community does not support with money. I have no knowledge to the truth of this story.
