This is definitely worth a visit and can be tied in with a visit to the carved Budha.Lots to see and it's a very calm and peaceful place.We travelled from Pattaya on scooter takes about 40 minutes.Spend a couple of hours here you will not be disappointed.

This a beautiful spot showing off Buddhist culture and history in the most pleasant lake and garden settings. The site includes a museum explaining Buddhist thinking as well as a number of temples. One is encouraged to buy some fish/frog or similar species and 'let them free' in one of the lakes to accumulate 'good karma'. Good fun.
