This is the brainchild of Thai millionaire businessman, Lek Viriyaphant. This one-of-a-kind teak structure is a truly awe-inspiring sanctuary to a philosophical truth, which tells of the importance of religion, philosophy, and art. They showcase how these have played out in human development and the consequences of neglecting morality and spiritual contentment in the pursuit of materialism. It is a beautiful and humbling demonstration of human endeavor and skill, particularly when you realize that none of the wood being used, has been treated or chemically protected, and constructed without using any metal nails. This means that, as one section is completed, another has succumbed to tropical conditions and must be replaced, which is in accordance with the Buddhist beliefs that nothing in life is permanent. Billed as "the magnificence of heaven recreated on Earth", this massive monument, built entirely of wood, is a study in Thai architectural styles. This structure was built exclusively to pay homage to ancient religions and philosophies. The cycle of life, Utopia, and humanity's relationship to the universe are some of the themes reflected in the artwork here. This magnificent artwork fills every available space and is intricately decorated with wooden carvings.
