Phra Prang Sam Yot, Lop Buri

#1 of 18 in Things to do in Lop Buri
Founded in the 13th century, Phra Prang Sam Yot originally served as a Hindu sanctuary but was later converted to a Buddhist temple when Ayutthaya rose to power. The main draw today, however, is the population of monkeys that reside here. While these creatures are not afraid to approach you, they certainly are not tame either. You can bring food for them, but be careful how you offer it: simply hold it out and let the monkey take it. Do not try to pet or hold the monkey, even if it climbs on your arm, or it may bite. Zip up any valuables in a backpack. See Phra Prang Sam Yot and all Lop Buri has to offer by arranging your trip with our Lop Buri trip itinerary maker .
