This is a part of series of temples in the south of Pattaya near the sea. Wat Chai Mongkol has been designated a royal temple, elevating what was once a private monastery in the area’s most important centre of worship.
Nearby there is a beautiful temple called the white temple.
Mini Siam is the famous park , home of miniatures of sites from all over the world (including USA, Europe, Russia, Australia, Asia and many other regions) including of course Thailand. It was built in 1986 and is located in central Pattaya.

This charming restaurant with a huge garden, a swimming pool and 10 bungalows

You can see them in the photos.
Most of the other photos are of the Buddhist temples (Thai and Chinese) in the Pattaya region including The Sanctuary of Truth, Buddha Hill (Golden Buddha), The Wong Amat temple in Naklua and the Chinese temple on Buddha Hill and others…
