Lopburi city, ancient historical sites and sacred temples

         Besides a large group of monkeys and Phra Prang Sam Yot, what else do you think of when you mention Lopburi? I am not surprised, really if people still cannot figure it out. Because we initially looked over what Lopburi has to offer. Lopburi in fact  is a small oasis with lots to explore.   

         Amphur Muang Lopburi is situated on the Southwest of the province. There are 2 main roads Highway No. 1 or Phaholyothin road, which cuts through an intersection to enter into  the city. Total area of the administration altogether 24 Tambol (sub district), 16 villages, with population of 250,000 people. The city zone was the original site of an ancient city and was before the central La Woe Kingdom. The La Woe Kingdom regained its prosperity again during Somdej Phra Narai Maharaj the King of Ayutthaya period. His Majesty the King established Lopburi as the second capital city. Places of historical sites of both periods are proof of evidence, which are left to be seen.

         Prior to that the city of Lopburi was the central of religion both Vajrayan Buddhism during the period when La Woe gained power and also Buddhism discouraged Gera. Many temples are situated close by reflecting a status of a well-being in the past of the Buddhist religion in the following area. Since, the period of Chom Phon Por. Piboonsongkram, Amphur Muang Lopburi is also a base of military units and was well known for the city’s safety priority.

         On the other hand, hotel accommodation and a place to stay isn’t hard to find either in Lopburi. The majority of hotel accommodation is competitively cheap, safe, clean and convenient. This fits the character of Amphur and Lopburi province images and that is not to focus on exclusive hotels so, that people can afford to come with a friendly smile. 

         I suppose we all realize that monkeys have made Lopburi city famous. Surprisingly, monkeys in Lopburi adapted themselves and their way of life so, that they can live together with the local community. Especially, monkeys at the Kan Shrine or at Phra Prang Sam Yot. From tree monkeys they have now become electric light post monkeys, climbing all over people, houses and buildings. Lopburi people have a strong bond with these monkeys and will do anything to protect them from being harmed. If anyone bullies the monkeys, Lopburi people will treat them as if they were bullying their relatives as well.

         So! please spend a little bit of your time in Lopburi, then you will realize that in reality, this city has much more to offer than you can imagine.
