San Phra Kan or the Kala Shrine

Monkey central

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars



This shrine is not particularly old but highly revered. Built in 1951, it's home to a stone statue of Vishnu with Buddha's head on it. The statue is completely covered in gold leaf but is still fairly unremarkable. What's most remarkable here is the sheer number of monkeys - they are such a menace that the entire area was caged in to try to control them and stop monkeys being killed on the road outside.
