6 Hua Hin Temples to Put on Your Bucket List – Our Guide

A trip to Thailand wouldn’t be complete without visiting its cultural landmarks—and that includes its numerous temples! Replete with the country’s culture and tradition, temples are a great way to acquaint yourself with the history of Thailand and its customs.

Many of the country’s beloved temples are found in Hua Hin district, located in the Prachuap Khiri Khan province. Our resort in Hua Hin is strategically located so that these temples are a hassle-free visit—so get on board and experience the best that Thailand has to offer from one of the best hotels in the country. Are you ready to start exploring the culture hidden within Thailand’s temples? Here are six Hua Hin temples you absolutely shouldn’t miss:

Khao Takiab Temple

The temple, which is a thirty-minute drive from the Devasom Hua Hin Resort, is known for its massive statue of Buddha. It’s approximately 20 meters or 65.6 feet tall—that’s about the size of a 6-story building! It’s right at the base of the hill, so you won’t be able to miss it.

Khao Takiab is a quiet village, but there are lots of things to see in this quaint little town. It has restaurants by the seaside that are worth checking out and there are monkeys that live near the temple!

Wat Huay Mongkol

This temple is also a thirty-minute drive from our resort and is an extremely popular destination for visitors—especially Buddhist pilgrims! It is also home to Thailand’s largest Buddha image of Luang Phor Tuad, which draws in thousands of visitors every weekend.

Sitting among several streams, waterfalls, pavilions, bridges, and a lake, the temple is a great place to spend time to relax, refocus, and simply enjoy. It also features many restaurants and shops that sell Buddhist amulets—ensuring that there’s just about everything you need within the premises. We advise you to visit the temple during weekdays, however, when it’s a bit less crowded.

Wat Khao Sanam Chai

This temple has gorgeous white buildings with artistic gold trimmings, which are made even more visually pleasing with the numerous bells and flags decorating its facade. It also features stunning panoramic views, which are especially breathtaking during sunsets. Many visitors flock to the temple at night for this reason.

Wat Bor Fai

Located along Khao Takiap–Hua Hin Road, the temple is situated around 5 kilometers north of Hua Hin. It is famous for its numerous ponds, in which sacred catfish swim. Visitors are free to feed the catfish after they donate a small sum to the monks.

Wat Khao Krai Lart

The temple, just 20 kilometers from the Devasom Hua Hin Resort, is located between two other temples on a mountain. You’ll get a day’s worth of exercise climbing the stairs to reach the temple, but the extraordinary panoramic views from the top make all that legwork worth it. The temple, but the extraordinary panoramic views from the top make all that legwork worth it. The temple has surrounding fish ponds and feeding the fish supposedly brings you good luck.

Wat Hua Hin

Last, but definitely not the least, this temple—also known as Wat Ampharam—is the most significant temple in Hua Hin. The temple, which doubles as a monastery, is situated in the middle of town and is more of a place of worship than a tourist destination. However, visitors are free to join the meditation sessions, which take place in the afternoon. The interior showcases murals that illustrate vignettes of Buddha’s life, along with golden statues of his likeness.

Conclusion

Visiting temples is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the Thai experience. Not only will you learn more about the culture, but you’ll get to try a variety of food at the temple’s restaurants while enjoying the scenery these temples have to offer. Whether on a mountaintop or land, you’ll always see the beautiful Thai waters.
