I can only recommend that you take pictures from outside a safe distance away. It is simply too dangerous. You are guaranteed to have monkeys attack you. Families with small children stay away.

Lop Buri is the heart of the central Thai classical Siam. These ruins go back hundreds of years with Khmer influenced architecture. Step back in time here and wonder what it was like.

This temple dates back to the Khmer era and originally served as a Hindu temple, later to be converted to a Buddhist temple. For those that have been to Siem Reap in Cambodia, this temple would not be notable, but it is a rare example...More

Pretty cool to see all the monkeys around the temple and across the road where they are fed and hang out. Be sure to not have earrings and exposed jewelry as they will jump on you to get at it.
