Attractions, Bangkok
Buddha Statue In The Phra Prang Sam Yot 02

Steeped in interesting history, Lopburi is full of temple ruins, which mainly date from the Ayutthaya period. Lopburi is located almost 150 kilometers north east of Bangkok, reachable in a day trip.

The temple ruins in Lopburi take you back in time: for example, the Prang Sam Yot was originally a Hindu shrine and was converted into a Buddhist temple during the reign of King Narai.

Lopburi is also well known for its Crab-eating Macaques roaming the ruins and begging for food.
