Nice Buddhist temple complex within natural cave system, worth visiting when passing by on the way to Huahin. Free of charge for all visitors. Pretty peaceful inside and quite cool in terms of temperature as well. There is a trail which leads to another semi open cave on the right from main one. Beware cheeky macaques, leave all foods in the car to avoid harassment.

This complex has a grand entrance: first, you need to climb the stairs, then descend into the cave. At the entrance you may encounter monkeys hunting for food, so watch your belongings. In the beautiful lit cave (see photos), you'll see an impressive array of stalagmites and stalactites. The cave is historically famous because King Rama IV practiced meditation here while he was ordained. Next door you'll also find Wat (Temple) Khao Yoi which has impressive murals. Both locations are very well maintained and safe to visit. Unlike more famous temples in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, this location isn't swamped with visitors so it's a relaxing and highly enjoyable experience.

A temple inside a cave with a big Buddha statue. Outside is full of monkeys, but monkeys here are starving because people are scared to give them food. Monkeys near the cave temple are big monkeys that are not so afraid of people, they could steal food from you if they see it. However, the smaller ones, babies, pregnant ones and one with tiny baby hanging to it would all be around the toilet area. (Toilet here is clean!) These group of monkeys are not aggressive and are afraid of people. There's a guy who sell corns in basket. If the monkey sees you coming with the food they would come surround you. The most they did to me was touch my legs. It was nice seeing them happy. Ps. Don't forget to throw to the far ones too.
