Jao Poo Sam Roi Yod of Wat Sam Roi Yod

 
Jao Poo Sam Roi Yod is the mountain god of Sam Roi Yod mountain in Prachuab Kirikan province. The Chinese style shrine (seen above) is located inside Wat Sam Roi Yod temple. As we know this is the mountain that produces many wonderous stone relics (Hin Phra That) of great energy.

Wayne, how to reach to this temple? Hope can get some direction from you. Do I need to get a English speaking guide as I speak no Thai language.

TQ, Lai
