This attraction is the first and biggest hand-carved sculpture in the world. As you enter, discover how the museum is sectioned into 3 levels which symbolize the underworld, the earth, and heaven in a lot of religious and philosophical thinking. Start at the Suvarnabhumi Level, the underground level of the Elephant. Observe a showcase of ancient artifacts and porcelain - all part of the owner's prized collection - which represent 'the past'. Admire numerous artifacts including the Thai style ceramic ware of Benjarong. Also marvel at the figure of Naga, the snake-like god of the underworld who is the givers of waters in Buddhist belief. Next, head up to the Earth Section, the circular base that supports the weight of the elephant. See how the interior of the building incorporates many art forms of the world, including Western and Eastern styles in a truly unique form. Notice how the ceiling of the entrance is similar to the ceiling of the earth and the stained glass form the pattern of the Earth. Finally, arrive at the Cosmo Level which is the area inside the body of the elephant. Navigate along 2 passageways from the right and left feet of the elephants towards an area painted with stories of gods and goddesses floating in heaven. Once you've explored the interiors of this unique building, continue your tour to the outside areas. Take a stroll through the garden which is filled with rare tree species from all over Thailand, some of which have significance in Thai literature.
