everything, especially the white jade Quan Yin and the wonderful art works. There are numerous statues of the glorious Quan Yin. The warriors on the upper deck are wonderful. There is an enormous Jade pagoda also.

An amazing place with a marvellous collection of Chinese and Thai works. There are even original terracotta soldiers on display. Be sure to check out the 500 yr old paintings and the bronze statues on the roof level. Well worth the 50 baht entrance fee.
