We spent 2 hours here just looking round the temple. There are other attractions there but not that we were interested in. The detail of the carvings is amazing, full of symbolism and fun figures. The fact that you can watch the crafts people carving the wood is interesting and the scale of the work is breathtaking. Don't forget to... More

Amazing structure and in wonderful location. The fact it's being worked on detracts a little. It's the most commercialised temple I've ever visited. They're out to fleece you for money left, right and centre from 500B entrance fee to elephant rides, boat trips, little zoo etc.

Lovely place to visit, we did the elephant ride here too, it was brilliant fun. The building is beautiful with hand crafted detail throughout, was great to see them working on it at the time.

Loved the meaning behind the sanctuary and was enthralled watching the craftsman hand carve various sections of the sanctuary. Very enjoyable.

Huge and hot. The sculpture is amazing! But the whether is pretty hot. If i remember correctly, ladies should wear long bottoms.

Visited this place in April ! Probably the best place in Pattaya.. The artwork was absolutely magnificent and it takes you around 2 hours to complete visiting the place. Felt little bit on the expensive side but once we got there, it was worth every penny !! Must visit place ..

When it comes to Pattaya you have to look for hidden gems and this in my eyes is a jewel in the crown . If you have a genuine interest in the culture this is a place not to be missed. Art , beauty and culture in one and only 20 mins taxi bike to view

As usual, we visited it the first thing in Pattaya as that was the top on TripAdvisor. It was worth the visit. Would suggest everyone to take the elephant ride here than to other places. Looking at the sanctuary and the backwaters view from the top of elephant was amazing! We clicked some awesome pictures. It was unfortunate the building... More

Me and my wife visited this on a tour excursion while cruising and although expensive we found it was an amazing sight. It is a wooden pavilion with intricate and detailed wooden sculptures reflecting the ancient vision of Earth, ancient knowledge, and Eastern philosophy. It was great to browse the wooden hand carvings. It is still in the process of... More
