At Huay Mongkol Temple, admire the 12 m (39 ft) tall statue of Luang Pu Thuat, a popular monk famous for performing miracles. On either side of the memorialized man stands two large elephant statues, under which locals walk for good luck. Dine at a Thai restaurant, buy a lucky amulet in the likeness of Luang Pu Thuat, or wander the attractive park in which the temple is situated, featuring a lake, water features, streams, bridges, a number of pavilions, and lots of shady places. Be aware that the temple becomes very crowded on religious days. Using our custom trip planner, Hua Hin attractions like Huay Mongkol Temple can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • We went on Saturday but there were too many people better to go during the week because on the weekend there are many outings and many Bangkochini to reach the temple you have to be 112 or the road to waterfalls of Palau and watch for the sign to turn left. The temple is very great and beautiful is a large statue of Bonzo Mongkol and faced a large square ample parking if you want you can also talk to priests and of course bid use thai you can also eat a plate of rice is worth a visit.

  • Huge sitting monk is very impressive. Must see to understand Thai culture. Also look at wooden elephants. Large space to walk around, you can feed fish in the pond 
  • Impressive statue on enormous stepped plinth. In each of four corners of the plinth at ground level are the most beautifully carved elephants. Worshippers performed a prayer ritual around them which involved walking around and under the trunk of the elephant I am not Buddhist but the whole of the Wat emitted a calmness. Definitely worth a look. We were taken by a Tuk tuk driver, it was not in the guide books.
  • Wat Huay Mongkol is famous by the big "Luang Pu Taud". The very admiring monk from ayutaya period. Luang Pu Taud actually live at "Wat Chang Hai" Pattanee province. We have no idea why his big statue stay here.
  • Thaipeople love it, great statue of a buddist monk. I think if you are not a thai or a buddist. it's just nice ....
  • Good place to see big big Buddha and make merit. The location is not far from Hua Hin but you have to drive or ride motorbike yourself to get there.
  • If you have a car and are in Hua Hin it's worth a visit, definitely if you are Thai.
