Really nice temple made completely from wood. Fantastic carvings, reliefs and statues are really worthy to see. The temple collect all asian religions and incorporates them into united architectural ensemble.

This is a really good place to see a temple by the sea. Everything is hand carved and really impressive.

Really worth visiting for the great wooden sculptures. Great idea to put together these three wings for Thai, Hindu and Chinese art.

When you first see this from the top of the steps it is a truly breathtaking sight. I have been a few times and always find it intriguing and peaceful. Watching the wood carvers is a sigh to behold also. Well worth the 500B entrance fee.

This unique sanctuary shouldn't be missed. Be sure to stop at the little booth just before you walk around the sanctuary to get a free tour guide.
