Vihara Sien


Vihara Sien is a beautiful Chinese Temple which we saw as we driving to Pattaya. Goodness me - it was quite spectacular!!!



It is no longer a Chinese Shrine but it is a Chinese Art Museum. 



This explained why it is so big and I could have continued taking photographs.



There was the grounds outside the temple - trees and sculptures. There are a number of Chinese granite gods, goddesses, zodiac figurines.




The first floor was similar to a museum and there was just so much to see and I could have kept going.



Walking upstairs I came to a place for prayer.




Then outside I looked down on the raised courtyard and it was like was a game of chess being played by all of these figures....
