Wihan Sian is a Chinese-style building that presents Chinese antiquities and arts of Chinese religious beliefs. It was build in 1988, took 4 years and 6 months to complete. There are statues of Chinese soldiers, ancient horse carriage from 2000 years ago, ancient pottery set, Chinese music instruments, drawing pictures, and the art of Shaolin fighting , 18 Shaolin saints, as well as the sculptures of Thai Boxing positions. In area presenting Thai arts is the model of Thai ship, the model of house styles of 4 regions of Thailand, wooden sculptures, actor masks and Thai music instruments.
This collection was the life work of an Chinese scholar. I am not quite sure how it ended up in Thailand, perhaps some rich Thai benefactor made it happen.
