Temple of Phra Prang Sam Yod lying in the provincial town of Lopburi is a popular destination mainly for those who want to see the dozens of freely moving macaque monkeys here. Their main gathering place is a temple, but they move in large numbers virtually anywhere in this town. The temple itself is of Khmer type, but it is not very spectacular.
 

Panorama of the temple

Sam Yod temple is the major monument throughout Lopburi. Moreover, it is easily accessible by foot – it is located only 500 meters from the train station. It is built in Khmer-style of three cobs.

Monkey temple

You will realize already at the entrance to the premises why is the temple called monkey temple. There are dozens of monkeys. To avoid any problems with them, do definitely not take any food from your bag.

Temple from side

The entire complex is relatively small, so you'll be able to see it in 15 minutes. You will certainly meet here cyclo-coaches that can take you also around other monuments of the town. You can for example see also the temple of Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat or the ruins of royal palace Phra Narai Ratchaniwet.
