You are invited to ‘walk in the forest full of animals’, ‘visit the fascinating ancient Khmer civilization’, ‘explore the magical Himalayan forest’ and ‘dive into the underwater world’. These experiences wait for your enjoyment in the zones of Wood Land, Thailand’s largest wood carving museum, with the highest number of wood-carvings in the country.
The fragrance of the rain and the cool refreshing air make this tourist attraction along the Tha Chin River, in Nakhon Pathom Province, even more alluring. Visitors are always delighted by exquisite wood carvings from both Thai and international artists, that fill the themed rooms of Wood Land: the Root Room, the Wildlife Room, the People of the Wood City (carved work influenced by the Khmer civilization) Naga Cave Room, Underwater World Room, Devanarit Room, Garuda Stair Room, Hinduism Room, Buddhism Room, and Christianity Room.
The delicate carvings show superb craftsmanship that seamlessly combines hidden meanings and aesthetic beauty to create fascinating wood sculptures. When enhanced by modern light and sound display media, their beauty transcends to another level.
There is a lot more to Wood Land than just exhibition rooms for woodwork, however. It also has a wooden village. The intricate details of the King's statue, royal coronation ceremony, and the cathedral area with its woodcarving of the crucifixion of Jesus, must be seen to be believed.
Wood Land also provides accommodation for tourists to enjoy a relaxing stay on the riverbank.
