  • One of the nicest place that I have seen, all the wood carvings. Thailand is a Amazing place to see. 
  • It was so cool! A little expensive. But a site too see. Cons: totally made for tourist. Has an obstacle course, elephants to ride, bourses to ride. Has no religion so it's legit just a pretty building they made to get tourist. But reminded me of Burningman so it was sick! Would not pay for anything else besides the sanctuary.
  • Best tourist attraction I found in Pattaya. The Sanctuary is still under construction (June 2016) so you'll have to wear a hard hat. The wooden structure is literally covered in statues and carvings depicting scenes from Hindu mythology. The amount of work required here, the craftsmanship are absolutely astounding. Definitely a must see! The surrounding area is a nice park where you can go for a pleasant walk. There are petting zoos spread in the area, including a chance to feed an elephant. Note that getting here is not trivial - you'll either need to take a taxi or a boat from Pattaya.
  • Amazing structure. Such intense details it was dumb founding! Could potentially rival Notre Dam and Vatican but lacks the publicity. Highly recommended! Opted for the speed boat and entrance combo @ 950bht. Had the speedboat all to myself. Wonderful experience!
  • It was a nice place to go! I remember there was a mother and father figure there, they said if you touch the mother you will have a baby. To weeks after, I am pregnant. 😊 I don't know if it is the reason but having a baby is always a miracle. I have been waiting and I am happy that it finally happened. 😊 The sanctuary is not biased with other religion, it is actually open for everyone. I love the breeze near mother and father statue, so refreshing. I highly recommend this place. 😊
  • P E A C E ful place.... so divine and relaxing Its must to go place in Pattaya
