The construction of the temple was inaugurated by Somdej Phra Yansangvara, the supreme Patriach of the Kingdom of Thailand on 21st February, 1999. It was completed and opened to public in 2001. The money for its construction was raised primarily on the donations of the Tahi Buddhists.

The temple was originally conceived as a forest monastery and is, therefore, located amongst dense growth of a variety of trees, shrubs and plants.

The temple, built in Thai-Buddhist architectural style, is located in a huge complex sprawling over an area of ten acres. Besides the temple, the complex also houses a monastery, garden, health centre, school and a library.
