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.

You have to see this! Amazing work of art! Completely hand carved. An ongoing project. You can feel the peacefulness when you walk in. Women have to have their legs covered like most of the Buddhist temples so plan ahead for that. Otherwise they do sell sarongs there for 200 baht. My husband and brother were fine with their longer shorts. You can get a guided tour or walk around by yourself. You can also take a ride on an elephant for 400 baht. If that's not your thing you can buy a large bag of bananas and feed them for 100 baht. Overall it wasn't expensive at all to enjoy the place. The Sanctuary of Truth is worth a visit for sure. Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship.
I think people NEED to research this place before making comments. It will always be under construction. So don't complain if people are working on it, when you visit. The entire place is made without a single nail (wooden nails) and it is continually being added to and maintained in order to help represent what it's creators vision was (who is now deceased, but his fortune carries the work on). It is so much more than simply a giant wooden temple. Obviously those who visit are amazed by the level of detail in its craftsmanship. But it has a journey and a destination... One well worth looking up, it's a great story and really a modern wonder. 🙏🤗❤️
A MUST SEE if you are in the Pattaya area! It's so beautiful, calm and much less crowded than some other main attractions in Bangkok. Entrance fee is 500 baht and you are required to cover shoulders and knees just like most temples in Thailand. Words cannot describe the beauty in the details and carving that has been done here. It's still under construction so you will see people cutting carving and putting this place together piece by piece.
It's location is so good and the wooden carvings makes the whole architectural work breath taking.. not too big and takes approx one to two hours to visit it.. everyone is expected to wear fully covered clothes else they make you wrap the cloth provided from their side.. the only catch was that still so many parts are under construction..
A very impressive place. There are some tourist guides that offer a tour around the place for free. They can tell you its history and some other interesting details. Of course, you can reward a tour guide with some tip, which is totally up to you. Also,there is a traditional Thai dance show, which is spectacular.
