Erawan Elephant , (31 images)|
We have earlier showed The Santuary of Truth in Pattaya ( ...Click Here ... ) Built by K. Lek. This time we will like to show you another temple he built, the Erawan Elephant. The three headed elephant - a 4 store building high elephant in a combination of a temple and a museum. In the basement K. Lek's many collections of ancient furniture, china, jewelry are displayed. In the main floor, a gigantic show room with high staircases and columns decorated with china pieces cut into wright shape. The top floor is more a 'heaven' experience with more religious image. A great monument in Samutprakarn, you simply can not miss it if you drive the old Sukhumvit road there. We recommend you to make a visit.
