Don't miss this beautiful temple. It is completely made of wood and you can actually see the carving taking place. Great place to take the family.

The size and photos just dont do it justice. On stressful days back in Aus I think of this place and look at the photos and im reminded of how... More

Unforunately I only had limited time, and not pay the 500baht entrance fee to go inside, BUT to take pitures you can go to the lookout for 50baht. Looking at this amazing place from a short distane was quite impressive, so much detail in its building.

This is truly amazing and worth a visit! The amount of work put to this temple is staggering! Suggest walking and not taking the hose carriage. I hope they would sell a basic piece of scrap wood for souvenir not just carved pieces.

What a terrific project this is. We had a terrific tour guide (free) who explained all the elements to this wonderful project. Absolutely fascinating and a must see. A work still in progress, another 30 years to go. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge. We also had a meal at the Santurary of Truth. A lovely meal, good price... More

Wow, what an interesting building, I had never seen anything like it before. It is amazing all the carving and ongoing work that has gone into this building. I thought I had seen all types of temples but obviously not.
