The idea behind it is to preserve the eastern wisdom architecture and message of peace through this shrine built as an ode to it.

  • The architecture is very detailed. During my visit in November 2017, there was some place that can't be entered because the building maintenance. I think they really take care of their buildings. It has a very large area. Notes: use proper clothes. If you forget to wear proper clothes, there are crews that will let you to borrow their clothes with deposit of around 500-600 bath if I'm not mistaken, which you can take back after you finish the visit.

  • Absolutely beautiful! Pictures can't do it justice. The silence accompanied by the knocking of the workers gives you a nice sense of comfort. The smell of wood and the constant breeze makes this place feel like the center of all things. A real testament to the good nature in people. You owe it to yourself to see it at least once in your life.

  • Very beautiful..still in construction phase. Gonna look even better after that. Go in the morning that's best time to visit this place. Keep ur camera battery charged as you gonna need a lot of it. And wear covered clothes. As it's sought of temple so you would be asked to cover up if you are wearing short clothes.. we didn't needed but have seen wraps are available in case you don't have any option to wear more covered clothing.

  • This temple is amazing. Even with the many temples you will visit in Thailand, this one is like no other. This temple is 15 min from the Main Street of Pattaya. Spend a few hours here. Get your camera and phones ready. It’s so beautiful that you will finish with tons of photos. The temple is right by the ocean. Be aware that entrance fees are 500 baht per adult and 250 baht per kid under a certain height. The price is steep but worth it when visiting.I know it's still under construction and this will be still for some years all restoration is don by hand and not so quick to completed. But the place is a must if you only stay...

  • Amazing temple. The entire building is carved by wood. Prior to entering, you will get to see the current work crafting, and some of the staff may let you try and carve the wood. Surrounded by the sea it gives a stunning view. The middle has the budha prayer space and at the end you will see a carving of the founder along with his picture. It is a must see. There are signs that are very true even in our days.
