About 15 km South of Pattaya lies this enormous temple complex. Gardens and a large lake, buildings in different architectural styles. A large white chedi. The complex was under the patronage of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, and after he was died there is a collection of the royal chairs. In the garden you can see a nice statue of his mother.... More

There are other temple complexes in the nearby area to see also. This complex had several well groomed garden ares and lakes. It had information in English, Chinese and Thai posted on all placards in the temple regarding wisdom in life's journey.

We are going there once a while for a stroll, feeding some fishes and turtles and to enjoy the surrounding green.

Walk up to the Buddhist Shrine on top a... More

This is definitely worth a visit and can be tied in with a visit to the carved Budha.Lots to see and it's a very calm and peaceful place.We travelled from Pattaya on scooter takes about 40 minutes.Spend a couple of hours here you will not be disappointed.

This a beautiful spot showing off Buddhist culture and history in the most pleasant lake and garden settings. The site includes a museum explaining Buddhist thinking as well as a number of temples. One is encouraged to buy some fish/frog or similar species and 'let them free' in one of the lakes to accumulate 'good karma'. Good fun.

A good place to visit after seeing the Buddha image that's carved into the mountain. The museum contains some fine art and what I believe were the only Chinese terracotta warriors on display outside China. Well worth a couple of hours of your time.

Located about 20 miles outside of Pattaya, this is a complex of buildings, small lakes, and active temples. Perfect place to see historical Thai artifacts, and buildings of various architectural styles. Take your time, walking and contemplating the beauty of this serene location
