Visited it on a motor bike, quite close to Hua Hin. Also a new Buddha statue was just completed. Worth a visit when there. No need to travel for it.

We stopped on the way to the Monsoon Valley. Very few people that day. Liked the story of the monk and the whole setting.

This temple, located not all that far away from Hua Hin, is a great place to visit, pray and relax. Located a bit in the mountains and slightly out of Hua Hin, the scenery allows for the eyes to take off into the distance and...More

Mostly a place for the Thai peop to worship. Hardly any information in any other language. Nice lake at the back. Oddly one can buy a fish in a plastic bucket and then release it into the lake.

I went there with my wife on 1st January, I’m not sure if it was a special day for Thai people, but it was packed with Thai people! But it was worth it! Nice temple, peaceful, nice place for some good pictures. Recommended to go!

Every Thai (friend) on visit to (us in) Hua Hin wants to pay respect at Huay Mongkol Temple. Impressive statue and hugh wooden elephants, surrounded by shops (eating, drinking). For sure it's worth a visit.
