A cable car ride up a steep hill took us up to the mountaintop temple. First observation is the breathtaking views, no English translation to state what we were viewing, numerous steps so I felt I’d done exercise for the day and the cheeky temple monkeys that run freely. Remember to where appropriate clothes - shoulders covered and no shorts or you will need to hire coverings whilst there which are 40 Thai baht. We spent several hours looking around. As I mentioned I wasn’t too sure what each building was but it was an inspiring place to visit. Drinks can be purchased at different stations and watch out for the monkeys going back down on the cable car. They will hitch a ride and take what they can. 5 stars due to the stunning views and serenity of the place.

Visited this historical site as part of a day tour of phetchaburi, the cable car getting up was nerve wracking and entry was more expensive than I expected it to be.
The museum and the buildings to enter are not particularly interesting or historically Thai.
However the views are stunning and climbing the stairs to some of the taller structures is definitely worth it, it's really immersed in jungle and is quite hard work.
Nice butterflies but the monkeys are very aggressive, more so than those at other sites in Thailand (avoid).
Don't take those who struggle with walking up lots of steps or young children who may find it boring.
Not many food or drink options up there, cute souvenir photos and toilets back down from the park.

Went as part of a day tour, it wasn't as interesting as I thought it might be, although some parts were closed due to renovation, so if you're going probably pay to check if it's all open. Also we missed the Chinese room which is open twice a day and we missed out by 5 minutes not realising this, but the parts we saw were only mildly interesting, definitely not worth a re-visit. We didn't see many monkeys and had no trouble with them

Interesting temple, accessed by cable car.
This is in Petchaburi, which is not a tourist hotspot.
Built on a high ridge (mountain to the Thais). Very beautiful views.
Many thieving monkeys, on the lookout for food. Will snatch stuff out of your hand. Including phones, and bags.

Enjoy the splendid view of surrounding Hua Hin on the small hill which housed the summer palace of King Rama 4. Take a tram ride up and leisurely stroll around. Tram ride cost B50/pax and entrance fee is B250/adult. You can check out the palace museum showcasing the furniture and artifacts used by King Rama 4. Also be aware of the monkeys living around the palace grounds, they will snatch your drinks! Do not feed them.
