The Sanctuary Of Truth - Review
A serene, calm and meaningful tourist destination worth a visit is the Sanctuary of truth in Thailand. This tall structure made of wood houses within it an amazing representation of the culture and architecture of Thailand. Built in the traditional style it is a monument worth a visit.
The idea behind it is to preserve the eastern wisdom architecture and message of peace through this shrine built as an ode to it. The wooden sculptures depict Hindu and Buddhist Gods as well as different elements from their mythologies. Each section is full of symbolism and intricate awe-inspiring carvings.
You should try and visit this modern attempt at preserving the past and marvel at its majesty. It is a very surreal experience to see the intricateness of the carvings and try to understand their importance from the point of view of Eastern Philosophy. There is a lot to take in with the depth of meaning of each carving being rooted in the ancient wisdom of Asia.

The Sanctuary Of Truth, Pattaya Reviews
It’s actually a temple which has various tourist activities. The temple itself is very spectacular with gigantic and beautiful wood craving. It’s actually have Buddha relics in which you can worship. However, the surrounding have a lots of tourist activities including boats riding, foot massage, ATV and animal riding. Yes, the temple is under construction, undergoing construction for 37 years now and ongoing construction for another decades maybe as it is made of wood and need to repair and replace consistently. Every sculptures and corners has it’s own meaning. There actually a guided tour which they will explain liberally, unfortunately they need more translator as they explain it mostly in Thai. เจตนาดี I think it’s worth the entrance ticket.
There's a unique feel about this place that i haven't experienced in other places of worship. It's not exactly a temple but it's a symbol of humanity. yes you can see buddhist symbols everywhere but the feeling does not revolve around them. for my first visit i hired a guide and she was really kind and gave me a lot of info but it was the second visit alone that changed my view of this amazing place. it enthralled me in a way that i could feel all of my emotions were flowing through my body like i was being one with the world! and at the end the 4 statues of mother, father and children was mesmerizing enough to make me cry (inside!). you can go there and take photos; and you can go there and feel the spiritual energy that the sanctuary has. it's completely up to you!
he Sanctuary of Truth is an amazing wooden building right on the beach in the Northern part of Pattaya. The building has been under construction now for more than 20 years, and it might take another 15 years before it is finished. The Sanctuary of Truth is completely made out of wood, and all the delicate carvings are done by hand. Each of the four corners has a tower with figures from Thai, Cambodian, Indian and Chinese beliefs and legends. Highlights: Visiting the Sanctuary you will join a tour group with an English speaking tour guide, who will be able to explain the concepts and ideas behind the building. Pass by the workshop and you can see a huge number of craftsmen working on the ornate sculptures, all of them hand-carved from wood.
It's a wooden carved temple kind of structure, built by the seashore. It's very beautiful, from outside and from inside. Entry for foreign tourists is 500 Baht (2018, September) you can spend one to two hours there. They also provide elephant and horse ride by paying extra. Though, simply walking around is fun as much fun.
A beautiful artistic attraction with some interesting modern history around it. However this is definitely not a traditional temple or place of worship but still has a great atmosphere for appreciating Buddhism and Hinduism. I say this as on the entrance you have to pay quite a large sum of 500 baht and there are many other rip off tourist attractions inside such as elephant rides and a zoo which I feel ruined the experience in order to just try get a bit more money off of you. These other attractions would not be viewed in good light by the religions that are admired by the building which I felt was a distorted contrast between the two elements. In conclusion I would still recommend visiting the site but maybe give the other "attractions" a miss out.
