Lopburi Monkey Banquet Festival is a unique festival dedicate to monkey in Lopburi. The festival has been held since the 1980s and continues to this day, usually held once a year, on the last Sunday of November.
Lopburi Monkey Banquet Festival comes from a unique perspective of Thailand. People consider monkeys to be the most loyal, brave soldiers in the defense of the safety of Narai – the most revered god of Hindu.
Each year, more than 4,000 kg of food is served to the monkeys. Like a buffet for people, the food is presented on long tables and meticulously prepared by a team of local chefs working together.
The monkeys of Lopburi live mainly in the area around the ancient Khmer temple of Phra Prang Sam Yot and the shrine of Sarn Phra Karn but can often be seen at various locations around Lopburi where they are fed by local residents. They are used to human interaction and aren’t shy about snatching food and drinks from people’s hands and bags
