We went here as a day trip from Bangkok. It’s smaller than expexted (only one temple with a small field) but many many monkeys. While the baby monkeys and the older (fatter) monkeys are quiet and not agressive, the adults do attack you even when...More

The temple is beautiful. Sadly it is over run by monkeys. The monkeys have no place to stay and no food. The buildings nearby are also deserted because of the monkeys. They rummage in bins and snatch food off people. They are aggressive because they...More

Rather small place with no special historic remains. Only attraction are a herd of vicious monkeys. Not worth the trip to Lopburi.

Lots of monkeys here. Some local boys will take money to protect you from the violent primates. Might be a good idea, as they will claw and bite you.
