    Monkey Buffet Festival 2011

    Lopburi is one of the provinces of the central region and home to several prominent artefacts and pre-historic monuments. Major architectural landmarks located within the provincial city area include the shrine of Lord Shiva or Prang Khaek, Narai Ratchaniwet Palace, San Phra Kan, Phra Prang Sam Yot and Wat Phra Si Mahathat. Another significant symbol of Lop Buri city are the monkeys. To its residents, the primates are descendants of Hanuman who, according to the epic Ramayana made Lop Buri his kingdom. These mischievous monkeys have taken over many attractions, especially San Phra Kan and Phra Prang Sam Yot. Accordingly, a grand feast held annually for them on the last Sunday of November is one of the most talked about events in the country.

    DATE: 27 November, 2011 at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.
    Where: Lop Buri
