Wat Khao Takiab in Hua Hin
Wat Khao Takiab is a temple located 7.5 km to the south of Hua Hin Railway Station. The temple is situated on Khao Takiab, also known as Chopstick Hill or monkey mountain on account of the large number of macaque monkeys which live on the hill. The monkeys are wild and congregate on the hill because people feed them. Be careful if you decide to buy bananas from the vendors at the bottom of the stairs leading up to the temple to feed the moneys as they can become aggressive and are known for stealing things from bags and pockets.
On the way up to the top of the hill, and the main part of the temple, is a 20 metre tall statue of the Lord Buddha looking out to sea. The main temple building is a shrine room topped by a tall chedi tower. The views from the temple are impressive looking over Hua Hin town in one direction and over Pranburi in the other. At the back of the temple are Chinese shrines and statues of Hindu deities. Inside the Chinese temple are paintings depicting scenes from Chinese folk tales and a statue of Pu Tai, which is the Chinese representation of the Lord Buddha laughing.
