Wat Yansangwararam, Chonburi.

Set in the Banglamung mountains this towering Temple can be seen for miles. I first saw this temple from the Viharnra Sien or Anek Kusala Sala Temple. It’s the Chinese temple mentioned in this book. I asked my friend Sutin who was driving the taxi and he told me all about it. So the following day, I made sure the first trip was to this incredible temple sat in beautifully landscaped gardens. There is a large lake that sets the canvas for this temple, you can see Pattaya city from the top of the tall temple.

As you drive into the temple you enter from a long winding road, on the right hand side is the beautiful lake setting. You are then met by a tall arched  gateway leading into the grounds. This lake has several Pavilion halls scattered around it. These interesting Pavilion halls are in various and unique styles, modelled in different nationalities architecture.  

There are seven built here in the style of  Lanna ~Thai, Central Thailand, Singapore ~ Chinese, Chinese ~ Thai , India, Japanese , and Swiss. Each of the halls has an image of dragons playing with water, which represents the kindness of the king of Thailand and are spreading this message to all the  Thai people. This area is  very beautiful and makes a very relaxing & calming place to visit.

During 1976, Khun Kajorn along with  Khun Nithewvadee Aontrakarn offered a large section of land, to Somdet Phra Yarnsangworn  the Supreme Patriarch, who was then the head of the Thai Monastic Order. Now, the complex is under the patronage of the current Thai King, King Bhumibol Adulyadej ~  Rama IX, for establishing a temple named Yansarnworn. While establishing the temple, Khun Nithewvadee and Khun Suarree Aontrakarn offered more land and currently  the temple now stands in around 366 rai or 146 acres.  It was built to honour the Kings of Thailand, past and present
