“Short ride out of town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

This place was very interesting. There are so many statues. Just amazing. It is not a Wat/Temple it is just a park with many different statues - Buddhas and Hindu statues.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

The park itself was not as big as we had imagined but it is a nice place to go if you want to get away from the city for a couple of hours. Took 45 minutes by Tuktuk and 15 minutes were quite bumpy but it was worth it.

“Worth the trek.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

We took a LONG and dusty tuk-tuk ride to the park. I would recommend the park but perhaps not the mode of transport. The park is a great selection of statues with plenty of superb picture opportunities.

“Strange but in a good way. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Usually avoid tourist traps but this place is one of those tourist traps where you want to go! The trip just to get there is interesting enough if you take a moto taxi, but once you arrive you feel like you are in some strange place. The huge structures made of rock and concrete are amazing some of them even pretty scary. You might find some monks lounging around that may decide to practice their english.

Time to see: 60-120 minutes

“It's a real trip, in every sense of the word”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

It's a sculpture garden, mostly cement staues of deities and gods and creatures. I think some guy across the river built it way back when, to make the Thai angry....we may have misunderstood, too, but I think that's the story we got. THere's alot of photo opps, so make sure you have a full battery. And hiring the meter taxis are the best price-wise and offer a great value with no hassle. You can call on 02022224764 and they will pick you up anywhere and take you everyplace, all for the meter. Hell, the tuk tuks charge more than the meter taxi on so many places, we used it to go everywhere.
