Monkeys and the Temple
Jun 2019 • Couples
We had previously decided that this was a must having not been able to visit this temple on a previous trip to Thailand as we were to far away..Now my wife has a fascination with monkey's why I dont know as having read on TripAdvisor that we were both going to get savaged by over weight monkeys I was dubious about going anywhere near them......Well I dont know what other visitors had done to them during their visit but I can assure you they were as good as gold, yes they did snatch bags of food from you and run off up the nearest tree to devour it other than that no problems what so ever even the mothers carrying the babies were good. The temple itself is spectacular set in a cave it contains many large statues of Buda and a calming atmosphere of tranquility with the opportunity to take many pictures. The grounds surrounding the cave are beautiful filled with brightly coloured golden buildings set in the backdrop of the cliffs. Also a verity of shops at the entrance to the attraction where you can buy a refreshing cold drink as the heat is quite unbearable all together a fantastic day out well worth it.

A pleasant surprise
Mar 2017 • Friends
This is a place full of surprises. Firstly you are dropped off in the car park and there are a few stalls selling drinks clothing and Thai souvenirs along with bananas and nuts. We soon found out these were to feed the copious amounts of monkeys that live on a sheer rock face and scamper about freely among the visitors allowing opportunities to have photographs etc. Then upon entering the cave once your eyes have adjusted there is a magnificent reclining Buddha that fills up most of the cave, hidden among the nooks and crannies are all sorts of shrines of holy men and animals. Continue through the cave and there is a flight of stairs leading through to the outside. At the top and to the left is another cave where you can go down and see all the rock formations but quite empty of anything remotely holy. Climbing the stairs and the second cave is not recommended for anyone with limited mobility as one of our party found out. She stayed in the main cave. After about an hour we took a leisurely stroll back to our transport and looked at the stalls stopping for a lovely fresh coconut to drink in the heat of the day.
