The Wat Huay Mongkol temple complex is located 15 kilometres west of Hua Hin and is famous for its enormous statue named Luang Phor Thuad, one of Thailand famous monks. The statue stands 12m tall and 10m wide and is visible from miles around towering over the trees.
The site is popular with Thai people who travel from around the country to pay their respects in return for good luck, health, fortune and happiness. Other religious landmarks of the site include a Bhuddist temple, statue of King Taksin the Great on horseback and two large wood-carved elephants.
