The wooden sculptures depict Hindu and Buddhist Gods as well as different elements from their mythologies. Each section is full of symbolism and intricate awe-inspiring carvings.

  • Certainly a must see in Pattaya. The gaint structure is made of wood, with intricate detailing everywhere. Tickets are 500 baht pp, a little steep for Pattaya, however when you see the wood work, you'll understand where the money goes. There's a small zoo throughout the complex, offering animal feedings and elephant rides. The actual temple is the main attraction and is pretty impressive. There are two or more cafes throughout the complex.

  • Temple crafted out of wood, it's an outgoing project which is estimated to completed by 2050. Hindu-Buddhist hand-carved wooden¬†motifs are peice of attraction. Elephant ride for kids, and beautiful area nearby sea. Some good options for snacks in the premises. Entry fee of 500Bhats

  • Good architecture! Love the temple. It is made from wood. A unique experience. Combined between Buddhism and Hindus. Some parts are underrenovation when I go, but still worth a visit!

  • A beautiful spiritual temple and for me worth every penny of the entry fee. Yes ongoing restorations which when you visit you will understand the huge task of ongoing renovation to a building of this size and I would imagine this is a continuous process. A great way to spend the afternoon.

  • Absolutely amazing. It was a little pricey at 500baht per person but the sanctuary was worth it. The details in every inch of the structure was a feast for the eyes. Make sure you have your camera ready. You will be taking pictures.... Alot of them. ALSO IMPORTANT NOTE... Women must have their legs covered (wear a comfortable long skirt) and guys don't wear shorts. 3/4 length pants or full length. This is a religious place. My gf was wearing denim shorts because it was so hot. She changed into a black dress and because she had some knees showing, she still had to cover up.
