“It's okay for 15 mins visit”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Don't expect it would be the typical temple you visited in other asian cities. This temple only has a big monk statue, and some bits of statues nearby the entrance that worth the picture taking. No indoor architecture you can find at this place.

“famous monk”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

An easy 15 minute drive from Hua Hin. A good place to make merit. Do a little research before you go, and you will appreciate the significance of this temple, and why it's so popular with Thai people.

Reviewed April 16, 2014

Worth visiting on way to Waterfall or Vineyard. Enormous representation of Huay Mongol, and good facilities. Interesting lake and gardens.

“stunning & aaawwweee so huge statue of a famous Thai monk”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

very popular especially with Thai people for its gigantic statue of one of Thailand's most famous monks. This monk lived some 400 yrs ago in Southern Thailand. It was said that he could turn salted water into fresh, drinkable water on many occasions.

Surprisingly peaceful and serene place well worth a visit.
