This is definitely worth a visit and can be tied in with a visit to the carved Budha.Lots to see and it's a very calm and peaceful place.We travelled from Pattaya on scooter takes about 40 minutes.Spend a couple of hours here you will not be disappointed.

This a beautiful spot showing off Buddhist culture and history in the most pleasant lake and garden settings. The site includes a museum explaining Buddhist thinking as well as a number of temples. One is encouraged to buy some fish/frog or similar species and 'let them free' in one of the lakes to accumulate 'good karma'. Good fun.

A good place to visit after seeing the Buddha image that's carved into the mountain. The museum contains some fine art and what I believe were the only Chinese terracotta warriors on display outside China. Well worth a couple of hours of your time.

Located about 20 miles outside of Pattaya, this is a complex of buildings, small lakes, and active temples. Perfect place to see historical Thai artifacts, and buildings of various architectural styles. Take your time, walking and contemplating the beauty of this serene location

Located Pattaya side of Nong Nooch gardens and the new water park it is about a 20 minute drive from Pattaya. Not just another temple but a very large area consisting of water features, lake, statues, monuments, wax works of prominent monks and really too numerous to mention. One of my favourites is a walk way up to the spectacular... More

This temple is very pretty and is surrounded by beautiful scenery and serene water. It will take you couple of hours to see everything peacefully. I hired a taxi and driver for whole day for $65 and it was well worth it. He took us to all the important and famous places and monuments. If I come back to Thailand... More

We spent four hours visiting and didn't see it all. The time taken to build the many temples has to be considered. There would have been an enormous amount of work just to build one, let alone a dozen or more. Awe inspiring and definitely worth a day to visit.

This is the good place to make merit and do meditation. Wat Yansangwararam has huge space with green area. Buddhagaya Pagoda, ground floor is the small museum, which is really nice lighting, but no air con.
