KHAO TAKiIAB TEMPLE - HUA HIN, THAILAND (2017)

2 years ago2K views

Khao Takiab Temple

The drive to the top of Chopstick Hill takes you past a busy fishing harbour and market at the base that is also worth a stop to photograph the local colour.

Flowers, candles, incense sticks, and other souvenirs are sold at the top, where hundred of macaques run wild, which is why the locals also refer it to as Monkey Mountain. Be careful though, the simians are known to snatch food or shiny objects from passersby.

A daunting steep staircase takes you up to the white and gold temple and your reward is spectacular views of Hua Hin and the sea. Pay your respects, descend, and take the path down to the water line.
Khao Takiab Temple

On a platform facing the sea is a very colourful Chinese Buddhist temple decorated in gold, red and blue with many large statues; one is of the many-armed Buddhist goddess Guan Yin, another is of her on the back of a dragon.

At the giant statue of Pu Tai, or Laughing Buddha, have a go at throwing some coins into his belly button as it supposed to bring you health, happiness, prosperity and longevity.
