The sanctuary is an all-wood temple filled with impressively detailed hand-carved sculptures resembling the style of Khmer architecture. The imagery is based on images from the Buddhist and Hindu religions and mythologies of Cambodia, China, India and Thailand. The project was initiated as an idea of Thai businessman Lek Viriyaphant in 1981, and is scheduled to be complete in 2025.
The project intends to use art and culture as "a reflection of the Ancient Vision of Earth, Ancient Knowledge, and Eastern Philosophy. Within this complex, visitors will understand Ancient Life, Human Responsibility, Basic Thought, Cycle of living, Life Relationship with Universe and Common Goal of Life toward Utopia".
You can watch people carving on site.
