What to see in Lopburi

Lopburi has some temples to visit. They are less interesting than the one in Ayutthaya, Sukhothai or Kamphaeng Phet but the curiosity of the city are its monkeys. They literally colonized a large part of ??the city where they are the kings. It is practically impossible to visit Prang Sam Yod without taking the risk of them trying to climbing on you or stealing some of your belongings.

Must-visits in Lopburi

Phra Prang Sam Yot Lopburi

Phra Prang Sam Yot

พระปรางค์สามยอด
My opinion :
located on a little hill not far from the railway, it consists of 3 prangs and is very popular with monkeys, it is the most famous monument in Lopburi.
Phra Kan Shrine Lopburi

Phra Kan Shrine

ศาลพระกาฬ
My opinion :
This sanctuary, if revered by locals, mainly attracts tourists for its horde of monkeys. It's a bit like their headquarters as I like to say. With the neighboring Prang Sam Yod, these are the two places in Lopburi where you will see the most numérous monkeys.
