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.

Very well build status and temple. Some how this place does not very religious. But yes still it is a beautiful place to visit if you are not too out of the way. There is a new and very nice road to the temple.
What a beautiful day today to visit this holly place off Buddhisum! Just out off HUA HIN this is a must to visit and enjoy the soraundings! Try to visit on a weekday! So very busy on weekend's and BUDDHIST HOLIDAYS. It has become a pilgrimage place for Thai people. There is plenty of parking around so relax and enjoy this beautiful place !
