Huay Mongkol monk was renown for miracles. If you are a bit spiritual and respect the thai culture, then you must come at least once. Buy the thai offerings and make your own prayer free style!

I've been here twice with my family the temple itself does a lot of good work for the poor as did the monk himself you can have your fortune told by the shaking sticks walk round the wooden elephants for good luck and give money to the needy nice place

Another type of temple that has a unique Buddha on top, nice to view for a couple of minutes. Would recommend going here with a rental car so you can determine for yourself how long to stay here.

It's a big monk statue and not really something, as a non-Buddhist, I appreciated that much. I'm sure anyone with a spiritual connection would enjoy visiting this place, but as it was a really hot day the only thing I really appreciated was the air conditioned cafe, which did do wonderful ice-cold coffee and fruit shakes.

Impressive statute of the famous Thai monk Luang Pu Thuat, a nice and peaceful place to be at. There are many stalls selling amulets.

Yes the statue is big and impressive but not much to see apart from the statue itself. If you pass near by go see it but can also be avoided.

I made the effort to visit the Huay Mongkol Temple, as it represents Lang Phor Thuad a revered monk from southern Thailand renowned in folklore for having powers such as turning salt water in to fresh water during a journey from Ayutthaya. A place worth visiting to experience the spiritual connection Buddhists feel at such places of worship.

Call my cynical, but to me Wat Huay Mongkol is more about fundraising than it is about being a genuine place of worship. To me, the place has a bit of a commercial enterprise feel to it. Easily 75% of the temple grounds are devoted to selling everything from OTOP-type products to Buddhist religious items and food. Many of the... More

Nice enviroment and a posibility to witness Thai Budhistic religion at work. You can take pictures without questions asked as long you do it with respect.
