Am thinking this is a Thai museum

I was confused but after entering and looking around it is a museum with so much to see, it is over whelming to say the least. Get there early.

Simply amazing, I expected to spend 20 minutes taking a few pics at yet another temple but I was tremendously surprised. There is simply too much there to cover in a short review but I’ll add pics so you can see some of it. Be prepared to spend at least a few hours here and all signs are in Thai/English... More

A huge Chinese musuem with the sculptures of Chinese kings, warriors, dragons and animals. I got impressed with the way they arranged all ancient warrior sculptures, gods, flowers etc. It is constructed in a multi storey building. Each level has unique setup. The idols kept on the terrace with all kung fu poses are superb. Must visit if you are... More

Living in Pattaya for 15 years never visited because I thought it was a temple. It is not really more like a Thai culture museum. I was pleasantly supprised. I took my parents and our children. For young children no action. I am very interested in history in general so was very nice for me.

We took our UK visitors here and they were impressed with the vast displays of statuary including the legendary Ghengis Khan. The items that really impressed them were the figures of the Terracotta army that are on permanent loan from China and the the superb model of part of the Great Wall of China. Then they discovered the two chariots... More

A museum full of Chinese art and showcased Chinese culture. It's like a trip down to memory lane of China's history, showing the different dynasties. If you're interested in Chinese culture, art, and history, you should visit this place.

It was raining cats and dogs suddenly after our visit to Buddha Mountain. From Buddha Mountain it's a 15 mins drive. Our Taxi Driver, Mr Zon, whom had been our driver to different attractions in Pattaya loaned us his umbrellas. But we were totally drenched! It was totally worthwhile! The Temple was a Museum with different deities, rich with Chinese... More
