Indeed a nice collection of statues and art, clean and well maintained. Absolutely worth the trip. Combine this with the Big Buddha mountain image a bit further up and you'll have a nice afternoon.

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.

The location in lush countryside is a short drive from Pattaya yet feels a million miles away. To the one side is a lake and in the distance a mountain view.

This place is absolutely gorgeous. There are 3 levels and all of them are wonderful. Make sure to get there with plenty of time so that you can take your time and get a good look at everything.
