These ruins are located in the middle of the city - and is worth the visit. As the title says, the monkeys are very cheeky (excuse the pun) and you really do need to keep hold of your belongings. They are smart enough to go...More

This Wat is fenced - Entrance Free is Baht 50 for foreigners only. As the area is overrun with monkeys it is quite dangerous to enter the grounds. People who were feeding the Monkeys were getting bitten. We just walked around the fence line and...More

Located at the middle of Lopburi old town area, one should not miss this temple when visiting Lopburi. Monkeys live all over the temple and its surroundings, and this combination can make good photographs! But beware of your belongings as the monkeys may snatch things.

The visit to the "monkey temple" exceeded expectations. Monkeys were friendly and provided you follow basic rules (no food, no glasses or other things they could steal) no problem to the visitor.
