Sitting in the meditation pose in the park-like setting, it is flanked by huge wooden elephants. The 3-headed elephant, Erawan, features in Hindu mythology makes many appearances in Thai life. The complex incorporates a... More

It's more of a place for locals to offer prayers.. not really for tourists. All the scriptures are in thai.. i dropped by on my way to the hills vineyard.. probably takes at least 20min drive to get there from hua hin town. no entrance fee required.

Very interesting area, past fields of pineapple and sugar cane about 15km west of Hua Hin. The buddha statue is impressive, if only for its size. Two giant wooden elephants greet visitors at the base, and another temple area is nearby. Lots of tourists, food and drink available, and free parking.
