Temple dedicated to a famous & highly revered monk, Luang Phor Thuad, with a large statue. Lots of Thais visiting the temple.

This is a real nice temple paying tribute to one of the most important monks in Thai History. This is the place where to go for good luck. The statue is impressive and take three laps around the belly of the elephant. What completely destroys the experience is that they on a loudspeaker try to peddle amulets. It is a... More

It certainly is a striking temple and worth seeing (especially early evening around sunset), but do your research beforehand or get a local guide to talk you through it all... otherwise you will feel lost.

Located about 20-25 minutes easy drive from Hua Hin, the temple is well worth a visit. It's hard to describe how large the Buddha is. There are a number of steps to climb to get to the base of the Buddha which may be a bit taxing for some. However, you don't need to climb the steps to view this... More

A real must for anyone to see a spectacular sight! Throw 3 coins in the elephants mouth & walk round him 3 times for good luck too.make sure you light the incense say a prayer & put the gold leaf on the statues😄

The temple is about 20 minutes drive from Hua Hin. The very large sitting Buddha is very impressive and the small temples around large Buddha are very good

Very sad to see how it's all about fleecing Thai's and foreigners for money. Has nothing to do with religion whatsoever. Very loud speakers asking for contributions and money. Mostly depend on poor uneducated Thai's to give their last penny's. Terrible and sad!

A really peaceful feeling place. You are able to get offerings and pay a donation for them. This is a worthy place to visit
