A number of very unique museum pieces here including a terracotta warrior the only one outside of china. Signs in Thai, Mandarin and English. Cheap entry fee at only 50 baht. Very impressive and well worth a visit

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.

This was a great place, a gentle wonder around taking in the sights, sounds and smells. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Not a big Chinese style temple but tons of bronze statues to look at. Personally I did not find them particularly fascinating but made a pleasant stop on the way to noonnuch garden. 30 mins at most to spend for most people.

This place has been built for over 20 years. There are many interesting things about Thai-Chinese Sculpture and Regional stuffs. It's about to see how Buddha Region has affected ancient Chinese in ages.
