Create an itinerary including Phra Prang Sam Yot
Founded in the 13th century, Phra Prang Sam Yot originally served as a Hindu sanctuary but was later converted to a Buddhist temple when Ayutthaya rose to power. The main draw today, however, is the population of monkeys that reside here. While these creatures are not afraid to approach you, they certainly are not tame either. You can bring food for them, but be careful how you offer it: simply hold it out and let the monkey take it. Do not try to pet or hold the monkey, even if it climbs on your arm, or it may bite. Zip up any valuables in a backpack. See Phra Prang Sam Yot and all Lop Buri has to offer by arranging your trip with our Lop Buri trip itinerary maker.

  • We drove from Bangkok to Lopburi. The ruined temple is nice and located at the center of the city Lopburi. There were many monkeys near the temple. We just saw the the temple from our car.

  • Very interesting experience! There were a lot of monkeys and some of them would look on our pants. Very strange but beautiful place. If you are a monkey lover this is your spot :)
  • Old Khmer style monument in the heart of the Lopburi city old town. This place is the paradise of the monkeys that controls this area but visit is possible (Entrance fee) despite the presence of hundreds of monkeys.
