Though smaller in size than "Prang Sam-Yod" known as Monkey temple, but I found it attractive to see the ancient civilization amidst the present town of Lopburi where it's people live an every day life. It's much more pleasant to walk around cuz there are...More

Small temple at the centre of a traffic intersection, it is on your way to other tourist attraction so worth a quick look. In another context this would probably be a main attraction, but with so much heritage in Lopburi, this pass quite unnoticed.

It is in a rather odd location in the middle of the town but since you are already in Lopburi probably to see the ancient temples and they are so near each other, why not? Will probably take five minutes to take some pictures.

Of all the ancient ruins you will stumble across in your exploration of Lop Buri, this is one of the oldest. It was originally a Hindu sanctuary dating back to the 10th century, when Lop Buri was in transition from Indian influence to coming under...More

It is difficult how this oldest of temples, former shrine and ambassadors' residence ended up in such a bad location on a small intersection surrounded by traffic. Worth a look if you are passing by but not worth making a specific trip for.

Located on a type of traffic island, the grounds are sufficiently large enough for locals to use as a picnic spot. Regretfully, the prangs on site, have also become the refuse containers for these picnics. Given the odour and apparent lack of interest in further...More

Although there is not much to say or see about Prang Khaek it deserves a little bit more of a mention as it's the oldest temple in Lopburi dating from the 11th Century. Wedged into a traffic island the traffic doesn't really detract from the...More

Lopburi has a long heritage. This low-key site may be the oldest Khmer-style Hindu shrine in central Thailand. It was restored in the 17th century by King Narai, and partly restored recently by the Fine Arts Department. It's a stone's throw (or a monkey's hop)...More
