About Travel to Lopburi
Lopburi is fairly close to Ayutthaya, but receives far fewer visitors. The main attractions in Lopburi, which are its Khmer era temples, pre-date the famous temples in Ayutthaya Historical Park, however, there are fewer places of interest to visit in Lopburi compared to Ayutthaya, which is why it is tends to be less popular.
Lopburi Town has two parts, an Old Town and a New Town. The New Town area has little of interest to tourists, and most visitors only ever go to the historic Old Town area to the West and North of the main train station. As a whole Lopburi has 60,000 permanent human residents, and thousands of monkeys living wild in the Old Town area. The monkeys are nuisance for the local people, however, they are also a tourist attraction. The temples in the Old Town are generally full of monkeys and in the last weekend of November there is a popular monkey festival where the monkeys are fed from long tables.
Temples in Lopburi
Lopburi is believed to have been inhabited since the 6th Century. None of the buildings from that time have survived. However, the temples built in the 12th and 13th Century when Lopburi was part of the Khmer Empire have survived. The three main temples to visit are Phra Prang Sam Yot, San Phra Kan, and Wat Phrasi Rattana Mahathat. These temples, which are within walking distance of each other, feature Khmer style prang towers and intricate stone carvings and reliefs.
King Narai’s Palace
For a very brief period in the 17th Century Lopburi was the capital of Thailand. King Narai built a palace in the city from which to rule from. The palace has several throne halls and other significant buildings, some of which were added later by King Mongkut. The palace is open to visitors as is the nearby Ban Vichayen, which was the residence at different times for several notable foreign visitors to Thailand, including Greek born Constantine Phaulkon who became King Narai’s first minister.
