Impressive despite not old temple

Visited in April 2014, it was partly under construction. Its a good place to rest from the city, located in a silent place next to the water.

One the main attraction in the boring daytime in Pattaya. Beautiful structure, it's worth a visit, even if you saw thousands of temples. The complementary services like elephant ride, boat trip... sounds like a tourist trap. I bought the foot massage in bundle with the ticket for 100 baht, for 20 minutes. If you buy it directly at the massage... More

This is simple, if you are in the area. You HAVE TO visit. It is not often that i get impressed. But this is just great. I wil go back some other time. And if you have a camera with a good zoom, there is so much details to photograph.

This is a must visit in Pattaya for the simple reason that it is an architectural wonder completely made of wood. Located in a picturesque area along the Pattaya beach, the size and the detailed wooden structure stands out and simply amazes the eyes of the beholder. Some of the central pillars are huge and tall as a 5 storey... More

This whole temple is carved out of wood.... from the stairs to the statues. There is always some restoration work going on. Please do abide by the dress code i.e. cover your legs and shoulders. In the middle of the temple there are numerous Buddha relics... and you can also offer your prayers. You can also take pictures in traditional... More

I wanted to visit a temple whilst in Pattaya and this is very different from the usual temples in Thailand in that it purely made of wood, it is always being worked upon and walking around the site after paying to get in and taxi from hotel took several hours, not that I noticed the time. The temple is truly... More

It was nice to walk around and see this beatiful catedral of wood. Amayzing work. The price 500 bath for ticet was ok. But dont take a taxi up there. It kost 300bath. If you jump on a "Bath taxi" it kost 10bath. (only differens is that you have to walk 200 meters)
