What a stunning statue, of the Monk who performed miracles to those who needed. You will need a good hour to walk around this religious park, have some cash to donate and there are some souvenirs.
It's free entrance and there is a coffee shop and ATMs.

Taxis were not available from there so you would need to pre book one or ask the one who brought you there if they could wait for you. I would recommend to come really early on morning, I was here from 0800hrs so you can avoid crowds and the heat.

The statue itself is breathtaking, and so many things to see and do.

Highly recommend!

I hope my miracle happens.

It is another recommended place in Hua Hin. Anyone who comes to Hua Hin must pay homage to Luang Pu Thuat for blessings. It is a large statue of Luang Pu Thuat and is another beautiful temple. Must worship this place, besides the statues, there is also a large fish pond to feed. The temple area is quite large. comfortable travel Whoever comes to Hua Hin, recommend this place.

A beautiful and large temple People come to worship Luang Pho very much. During the festival there will be a lot of people. The highlight is the large Reverend Father. Going there, everyone must survive the elephant's belly because it's good for life.

Roosters!

We really enjoyed our visit to this slightly strange temple. The set piece of the site is a huge, black statue of a Thai monk, with smaller ones of him riding on the back of a wooden elephant. One oddity - I had never seen so many brightly coloured plaster casts of roosters - some giant, others only a few centimetres high. Probably thousands!

The temple is nicely situated by a lake. Around the lake, there are some coffee shops and shops where you can buy fish food and feed the huge carps that are in this lake. Fun for families

Interesting Temple Visit !!

About a 30 minute drive from the city center. If you have not visited a Thai Buddhist temple before, you will find this interesting. However, it is just an average temple compared to others in Thailand. It is known for bringing good luck to visitors who buy lottery tickets, The next day I won $500 USD in the lottery !!!

Buddhist Temple with a large statue
Aug 2019
Just a few minutes away from the sea side town of Hua Hin is The Wat Huay Mongkol and it is home to an extremely large statue of Luang Phor Tuad, a legendary southern Thai monk revered for his enlightenment and ability to perform miracles. Its just 15-20 kilometers away from the city of Hua Hin and is worth a visit during the day time.

Surrounding the statue there are a lot of Thai-style pavilion dedicated to the spirits of teak trees, behind which you will see an enormous fallen teak tree believed to have magical powers. Lots of thai worshippers are gathering here and they pray with incense sticks while asking for their wishes to be fulfilled. This is partly a place to understand the animist belief as well. Thais pray here but this large park has also a lake, making it a great place for a lovely afternoon stroll

I spent about 30 minutes here looking over the grounds and taking photos. The Big Buddha statue was very impressive. Unfortunately we did not get to climb up next to the Buddha. Perhaps if I did I would give a higher TA rating.

Temple Visiting
Oct 2019 • Couples
This temple is worth to go for pray or visiting. It's a long journey from Hua Hin Centre to this temple. There are 2 huge elephant statues. Some said toss a coin and crawl below the elephants and you will be blessed. There is a small cafe selling hot & cold drinks. Right beside this cafe, there is a long staircase u can walk down as there is a huge pond with tons of catfish.
