Wat Yansangwararam, Chon Buri, Set in the Banglamung mountains, Chon Buri Province.

Wat Yansangwararam is said to stand for  heaven for those who love to meditate and practice the teachings. Wat Yansangwararam also offers different meditation courses for those that desire to follow this meditation. The meditation classes are held from 6.00 am to 18.00 pm. The location of  Wat Yansangwararam is within the Jomtien Area. Visitors need to drive along Sukhumvit Road from Pattaya City to Sattahip, look for the Kilometre 160 marker. After passing Ban Ampher, you  will see a  sign showing  Wat Yansangwararam is on the left hand side. After turning left, carry on for  about 5 Km, and you then arrive at the  temple area. Visitors who do not have a private vehicle can go there by hiring a taxi or Songthaew.

The main temple building of Wat Yansangwararam  is known for its modern design and is built in a very different style to many Thai temples. A pavilion called Mondop or Mandapa contains a replica of a footprint of the Buddha. Inside a large white 40 metre tall Chedi are many priceless relics said to belong to the Buddha and his followers.  Two beautiful statues are on display outside of the current King and Queen of Thailand and near is the statue of the current Kings mother. There is a large car park big enough for coaches and taxis and cars. Next to the car park is a large eating hall / restaurant where Thai food can be bought.

Inside the towering temple it’s very modern with modern art and works of art scattered around the interior. Mood music is played while you wander round this unusual temple building. Outside the grass areas are in need of  a gardener, it’s a bit of a mess, it could be made so much better and lets the whole area down when the rest of it is very picturesque. Don’t forget to visit the shrine on top of the hill, just follow the road past the temple buildings and the Monks dwellings, keep bearing left and you will come to a large parking area. On your right are the steps to the hilltop shrine. Also within the temple complex is a school and a hospital and  nursery and nursing stations for endangered wildlife.
